Review: Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade Winter Classic Blend K-Cups
Winter is upon us and so our various coffees for our single serve coffee machines touting they'll be perfect for a nice cozy cup of coffee. Fair Trade Winter Classic blend from Green Mountain coffee is just such a coffee for your K-Cup single serve brewer. We fired up our trusty Keurig B60 and sat back hoping this Winter blend would do the trick.
The Winter Classic Blend brings together Indonesian coffee with Central and South American beans. The resulting coffee is intended to bring about a very caramel like coffee with a smooth round taste and finish. We used the 7.25 oz setting on the B60 with water temperature coming out in the 188-189 degrees F range. We also sat back in our big easy chair, put a blanket over us, and proceeded to see how much the Winter Classic Blend improved our "coziness".
We were pleasantly surprised how smooth and caramel like the coffee is. The coffee comes across with a very smooth and round feel in the mouth. The coffee is definitely though is not flavored in any way, and the flavors are very natural coming out to be in the medium roast range for our tastes.
We added a little cream and sugar and found the coffee to really come across with a more nutty and caramel like flavor. How's our coziness doing? Well - not so good - actually fine but we ended up drinking more than 3 cups in the first sitting.
Overall we really like the new Winter Classic Blend and also like the fact Green Mountain is continuing their Fair Trade commitments in bringing this coffee to market.
We're going to give this a solid 3.5 out of 5 cups. We think if you like a medium roast coffee and like a coffee with smooth finish and lasting mouth flavor you'll love this coffee. We also think this is a great coffee for light coffee drinkers to try and see if they're might be something in medium roast for themselves as well. The Winter Classic Blend K-Cups will work in your Keurig B-40 Elite, Keurig B50 Gourmet, Keurig B-60 Special Edition brewers.
