Product Details Return to Top Tasting Notes To get a better understanding of this extraordinary coffee and its challenges, Lindsey Bolger, our Senior Director of Coffee, traveled to the fertile Wahgi Valley in 2009. She met with producers and exporters who were committed to quality and working hard on improving logistics. With Bryan Leahy as her guide, she was able to identify coffee growers whose beans would qualify for a very special Special Reserve. "Coffee often reflects the culture, people, and place where it is grown. Highlanders have a strong connection with the land and their coffee shimmers with its rich brilliance."– Lindsey Bolger, Senior Director of Coffee Rating: 88 Points (out of 100)Robust, woodsy. Nut, pruny dark chocolate, aromatic wood, a hint of fresh earth in aroma and cup. Rich but muted acidity; full body, earthy, savory-sweet finish. — Kenneth Davids, CoffeeReview, December, 2010 About Green Mountain Coffee® A great tasting cup of coffee can give you a whole new perspective.
