Sumatran Reserve Fair Trade Organic (K-Cup)
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Northern Sumatra|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||September 2006|
Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B60 single-serve brewing device using a "K-Cup" capsule at a cup volume of 5.25 ounces): Smoke and earth notes in the aroma are brightened by a hint of floral-toned vanilla. In the cup, low-toned acidity, substantial body, and continued smoke, earth and floral notes rounded by a quiet caramel sweetness.
Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Keurig brewing devices were among the first single-serve coffee brewers on the market. Keurig now offers three home models (www.keurig.com) with a wide range of coffees available in compatible "K-Cup" format. Green Mountain offers this particular coffee in an "Extra Bold" K-Cup, which means it contains more coffee than a normal K-Cup and brews a somewhat richer, heavier-bodied cup. 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.

Who Should Drink It : Keurig owners who enjoy the rich earthy-musty character of fine Sumatras.
