Product Details Return to Top Tasting Notes Coffees from farms surrounding the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve in Mexico provide the cup with plentiful body, as well as a unique, spicy chocolate note, and flavors of ripe, dark fruit. Rating: 90 Points (out of 100) Balanced and classic. The acidity is sweet and well integrated, the mouthfeel round and cleanly smooth, the flavor rich and straightforward with coffee fruit (the closest analogy is red cherry) that hints gently at milk chocolate. Long, resonant finish. — Ken Davids, CoffeeReview.com, September 2004 About Green Mountain Coffee® A great tasting cup of coffee can give you a whole new perspective. It's a moment to pause, reflect, and reprioritize. That moment is what inspires us to make coffee that benefits everyone it touches. From carefully sourcing and roasting the highest quality beans, to supporting small farms and protecting the environment, we focus on what's important. That's why we at Green Mountain Coffee® believe a good cup of coffee can change your day... but a great cup of coffee can help change the world. Notes From Origin Deep within the Sierra Madre mountains of Southern Chiapas is one of the world’s most pristine and diverse natural places—300,000 fog-shrouded acres known as the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve. This extraordinary cloud forest is home to the resplendent quetzal, spider monkey, jaguar and tapir. Hundreds of butterfly species flit among giant tree ferns, bromeliads and orchids. It is one of the few remaining unspoiled places in Mexico, and all of Latin America. In the buffer zone surrounding the reserve, family farmers grow coffee under the shade of a forest canopy, which provides habitat to countless species of migratory songbirds—nearly 400 species of birds have been recorded in El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve — mammals and insects. In this way, the buffer zone both protects the core zones of the biosphere, and promotes sustainable commerce for the surrounding communities of farmers.
