Green Mountain Coffee
Sumatran Reserve (K-Cup)
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Northern Sumatra|
|Review Date:||December 2005|
Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B60 single-serve brewing device using a "K-Cup" capsule at a cup volume of 7.25 ounces): Sweet, simple, caramelly aroma. In the cup medium-bodied but lean in mouthfeel, with a thinly pungent, musty/malty character and hints of cherryish fruit. A mild musty astringency in the finish leans toward rich.
Notes: Keurig brewing devices were among the first single-serve brewers on the market, starting in the mid 1990's with office models and now with three home models, the no-frills B40, the B60 with more flexible brew-strength/serving size, and the full-featured B60 (www.keurig.com). 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 : Lovers of Sumatras who care more about the malty/fruity flavor and less about the body of their favorite origin.
