Tasting Notes

The Chanchamayo province of Peru is a lush, spectacular mountainous jungle setting, veined with tumbling rivers and cascading waterfalls. Given its natural, rugged beauty and its tremendous bio diversity, coffee growers here treat their organic farming practices and natural shade-canopy as an ecological imperative. We offer our Fair Trade Organic Rainforest Blend in support of these organic farmers, and of the rich rain forest ecology that they labor to protect and defend.

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

Peru is a country of majesty—majestic ruins like Machu Piccu, majestic mountains like the Andes, and majestic cultures like that of the Inca. Increasingly, Peru is also a country of majestic coffee.

Coffee coming from Northern Peru tends to have a sharper quality to its flavor, whereas coffee grown in the central and southern highlands is milder, likely because of lower altitude.

We purchase this coffee from the Chanchamayo region of Peru.

In general, coffee farmers in Peru contribute significantly to the organic coffee sector. As a result, they receive better prices for their coffee and are able to use more environmentally sound farming practices. These organic farming techniques result in the protection of the immense biodiversity of the region. This coffee is a treat for the taste buds and for the land.

      This is the best coffee ever. It has been difficult to find in stores. Now I see on this website that it is being discontinued. Very disappointing. This coffee made getting up in the morning something to look forward to.

            I was thrilled to find this coffee in my local grocery store's organic section. I am a person of conscience about the coffee I drink. To be able to enjoy a cup of coffee with a such a satisfying history and a bright future for the land, the farmers, the planet as a whole and the nation(s) which produce the coffee thrills me.

                Comments about Green Mountain Coffee FT/Organic Rainforest Blend:

                Be warned, this product is an acquired taste. This is an extremely dark roast coffee, with almost nonexistent acidity. What this means is that it is not "bitter", however, it is also lacking in flavour. If you love dark coffees but they all taste harsh to you and never go down easy, you might like this. I much prefer a more lively coffee with a sparkling acidity, whether dark or light. This one just tasted dull.

                      This coffee is awesome! It has a nice full flavor that covers the entire mouth and tongue, yet it's not bitter at all, is very smooth. I grind my own beans daily- if you do not have a coffee grinder, get one!- and store them in a food saver container which keeps them much longer than ground. I have an auto drip coffee maker with an "aroma" setting, allowing me to use less coffee, but still have a nice strong cup o' joe.
