Green Mountain Coffee Review

Green Mountain Coffee gave me the opportunity to review some of their coffee, and boy is it good! I picked the Flavored Sampler, which comes with Caramel Vanilla Cream, Hazelnut, and Rain Forest Nut. All 3 are good, but the Caramel Vanilla Cream is amazing! It has a very well balanced flavor, and is probably one of my favorite coffees now! I am sharing the other 2 flavors with the rest of the family, but this one is just for me! (Okay, I did let everyone else try a cup...once!)
As well as selling ground coffee, Green Mountain Coffee also carries the K-Cups, Keurig Brewers, Travel Mugs, and even tea! Their prices are very reasonable, too.

"Carefully sourcing the perfect bean is just the start. The perfect cup reflects thoughtful consideration of each bean's character, and how different beans can be combined to strike just the right balance of flavor, body and acidity.

Of course, a great cup of coffee should be an everyday occurrence. Once we hit upon the magic combination of roast and recipe, our state-of-the-art software and roasting equipment allows us to replicate a roast profile precisely, time after time. The results can be revelatory."

"Blending is where the art is," says Don Holly, Director of Quality for Green Mountain Coffee. "Knowing which notes will harmonize, and which are better left to solo."

Don was part of a team that developed the recipe for Organic Espresso Blend. Working with the chefs of nearby Shelburne Farms, the team tasted our entire collection of organic, Fair Trade Certified™ beans at a medium roast. They then started blending, adding nuances of chocolate from our Mexican coffee with the deep body found in Indonesian beans.

"That's the way we determined how each element complemented the other, and were able to express the complexity of a good espresso," Don says. "It's like a conductor putting together a symphony of individual musicians."

I definitely recommend checking out Green Mountain Coffee. They have some really neat Gift Baskets and Coffee Samplers that would make a great gift for Mother's Day!
