Product Details Return to Top Tasting Notes Crafted for a superb performance in any espresso beverage, Fair Trade Organic Espresso Blend is sourced from a number of origins to display both balance and intensity. We look to Indonesia for syrupy body and depth, and the Americas for chocolate notes, velvety richness, and just the right amount of brightness to punctuate lattes and cappuccinos. A blend of different roasts and origins that harmonizes beautifully straight or with milk. Rating: 86 Points (out of 100) Assessed as espresso. Sweetly wood in the aroma, with a hint of dark chocolate and a savory, almost salty note. The same aromatic complex carries into the cup, though the wood warms toward cedar and the dark chocolate intensifies. Medium to full body. Heavy but sweet finish with a continuing chocolate note. In milk softens and sweetens appropriately but the shadow savory salt note continues to haunt the chocolate. — Ken Davids, CoffeeReview.com, March, 2008 About Green Mountain Coffee® A great tasting cup of coffee can give you a whole new perspective.
