Green Mountain’s Double Black Diamond Extra Bold


Along with the phenomenal Green Mountain Pumpkin Spice K Cups, Coffee For Less also sent me Green Mountain’s Double Black Diamond Extra Bold to try.

Green Mountain’s Double Black Diamond Extra Bold is a K Cup that I did not particularly enjoy the first few times I had it. It’s a remarkably dark brew. Usually the darker the brew, the happier I am. However, at first I thought this coffee to be too dark for my likings. I thought it was far too smoky, but after a few cups it grew on me.

Certainly this particular K Cup isn’t for most palettes. It offers a heaviness with a slight sweetness that I didn’t really taste until after getting over the initial smokiness. It’s bold to put it bluntly. And leaves a somewhat acidic taste on the tongue.

This isn’t my personal favorite coffee, but I do find it to be quite nice. It’s along the lines of a 3 star rating out of 5 stars.
