Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a "K-Cup" capsule to produce 6-ounce serving): Straightforward and smooth. Soft hints of roasty aromatic wood, caramel and a faint orangy, floral-toned fruit. Flavors linger gently in a very slightly astringent finish.
Notes: Reviewed in K-cup format for Keurig single-serve brewers. Keurig brewing devices were among the first single-serve brewers on the market, starting in the mid 1990's with office models and now offered in several home models with a variety of features and price points. 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: A hint of the roast in a buttery, caramelly cup for Keurig owners.
