Tasting Notes

It'd be easy enough to enjoy this coffee simply because of its story — a great partnership, a compelling origin — but in the cup this coffee has its own story to tell, and it's eloquent in the telling. It begins with aromas of cedar, bountiful Mexican chocolate, and subtle tropical florals.

April, 2007 Rating: 85 Points (out of 100)
"Rather subdued aroma, caramelly, with hints of flowers and chocolate. In the cup medium-bodied but silky in mouthfeel, simple and bittersweet, with distant hints of flowers, walnut, chocolate perhaps. Simple, rich, rather short finish."
— Kenneth Davids, CoffeeReview.com

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. And it is where PBS Blend takes root and blossoms.

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 birds, 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.

A trusted community resource, PBS uses the power of noncommercial television, the Internet, and other media to enrich the lives of all Americans through independent, original and enlightening programs and educational services that inspire people to be more — more informed, empowered, and engaged. By crafting a delicious, Fair Trade Certified™ coffee in support of PBS, we are able to offer you a blend that brings these values to life in the form of better coffee and a better life for the farmers who grow it. When you purchase PBS Blend you are helping to provide a delicious new way for the public to support this important cause.

        This is my absolute favorite K-cup. It is mild (as it says right on the box) and is really meant for a 6oz cup. Yummy at 6oz, watery at 8oz.

              I really wanted to like this one because of the environmental benefits, but it's just kind of ordinary. It has an odd aftertaste note of something that I can't quite place. I wouldn't call it unpleasant, but it's different. Not a bad basic cup, but just not a pure "coffee" flavor.

                Comments about Green Mountain Coffee K-Cup Fair Trade Organic PBS Blend:

                Since all the reviews of this coffee gave it five stars, I thought I'd give it a try. Very disappointing. Weak and watery flavor. After this box is gone I'll stick to the Dark Magic.

                  I served this first last Thanksgiving to a multitude of family and friends. It was an instant hit. Everyone commented on how great it tasted- they were especially surprised that it was a k-cup because it was not weak or watery.
                  I keep this flavor stocked at all times in my house. It is a smooth, classic coffee.

                    I love this coffee. It's best with a little cinnamon in the cup as the k-cup brews. I am not allowed caffeine for medical reasons, but I cheat with this one. I understand the realities of having it as a decaf. I do wish it was available as one, though.
