|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Est. Price:||$16.49/24 K-Cups|

(As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a "K-Cup" capsule to produce a 6-ounce serving). Deep, balanced. Buttery caramel, earthy dark chocolate, lightly charred cedar, raisin in aroma and cup. Rich, pungent acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate and raisin in particular sustain in a bittersweet, gently drying finish.
This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade, the latter meaning the green beans were purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Sumatras like this one achieve their unusual cup character mainly through unorthodox processing and drying methods unique to Indonesia. Keurig/Green Mountain, formerly Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, pioneered single-serve capsule brewing in the United States with its Keurig brewing system, and remains one of the country’s leading large specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.
