Green Mountain Coffee – Fair Trade Vermont Country Blend: K-Cup

Green Mountain Coffee sent me a few samples of their Fair Trade Vermont Country Blend a few weeks or so ago. I tried this K-Cup and am sad to say that I wasn’t too pleased. Let’s just say it wasn’t my cup of tea (or coffee, rather). Vermont Country Blend is a light-medium roast. The aroma was very pleasant – nice and nutty.

What was overwhelming was the acidity. It was much too acidic for my palette and that’s what turned me off. Maybe my dislike towards this coffee is due to my appeal towards earthy, darker roasts. I’m not sure. If you like a brighter roast, then I’d suggest this coffee to you.
