Tasting Notes

We take care to match our roast-styles to our coffees. As a result, our Colombian Especial is one of the lighter roasts among our Newman's Own Organics® coffees (along with Nell's Breakfast Blend). Colombian Especial's medium-light roast offers delicious balance with hints of sweet caramel and walnuts, and nuanced ripe fruit.

The Best of the Best
"Sweet, smooth-bodied and rich."
– OrganicStyle Magazine

Rating: 91 Points (out of 100)
Aromatically deep, with richly round caramel, toast and milk chocolate notes. In the cup penetrating acidity and flavor. Intense fruit-toned chocolate gives way to layers of fruit (peach, orange, black currant?) that soften and grow in complexity as the cup cools. Pungent dark chocolate dominates in the finish.
– Ken Davids, CoffeeReview.com, May 2010

About Newman's Own® Organics

 

 

 

Great tasting coffee that happens to be organic

It seems only natural that two companies with a shared vision of a better world would unite to bring you exceptional coffee and the chance to make a difference. Green Mountain Coffee® is proud to source and roast a line of world-changing, Fair Trade Certified™ coffees for our friends at Newman's Own® Organics.

Notes From Origin

Nell Newman – of Newman's Own Organics® – enjoys good coffee. When looking for the right roaster to partner with, we're happy to say she turned to Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. Our partnership focuses on the two companies' shared philanthropic goals, while offering an exceptional product line from which to choose. The six Newman's Own Organic/GMCR Fair Trade organic coffees are made from the world’s finest handpicked Arabica beans.

"The beans have been roasted according to the handcrafted tradition for which Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is famous," says Nell. "Fair Trade certification means that farmers in coffee-producing countries worldwide can enjoy a better life. Grown and processed according to the strictest organic standard, these delightful coffees are gentle on the earth and pleasing to your pallet."

Newman’s Own Organics®, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters®, and Coffee Kids® have teamed up to help women in Oaxaca, Mexico, through an innovative agricultural program which helps women raise chickens. The project provides them with a means to diversify and strengthen their household economy as well as improve their family diet through organic meat and eggs.

In 2003, Nell Newman traveled with us to Guatemala to meet coffee farmers in person. Below is a short video from her trip:

    Comments about Green Mountain Coffee 10oz GRND NOO Colombian ESpcl:

    The flavor is quite good. I drink it every morning. This is the reason I keep buying more. It is very messy to grind. I find a lot of "dust" to clean out of the grinder bowl. BIG PROBLEM is that it only comes in 10oz bags. This is quite wasteful in maximizing packaging that can't be recycled. My hand has little room to scoop out coffee. It doesn't mask its extra cost. I know what it costs/lb. but I don't mind. This is the only coffee I buy that comes in such small bags. Green Mountain won't get it in larger bags. Please do so! Perhaps if more customers made an issue of this it might come in larger bags.

          Comments about Green Mountain Coffee 10oz GRND NOO Colombian ESpcl:

          When I walk down the coffee isle at the grocer I love the smell. Then I would read reviews about the "sweet smell" of specialty coffee. I'm thinking 'coffee smell is coffee smell'… right?

          The other day, my wife brought home a bag of Green Mountain Newman's Colombian Especial. When I cracked open that bag I discovered the real meaning of "the sweet smell of coffee." And the taste is even better. No bitter bite. Just a smooth even cup that's good first thing in the morning or at the end of the day.

          Sure, they have specialty coffees at the grocer, but nothing comes close to the superb smell and taste of Newman's Colombian Especial.
