As I’ve mentioned before, my tastes tend toward the medium or dark roasts, but I thought it was high time to review a light roast.
Green Mountain Breakfast Blend is mellow and smooth with a pleasant flavor but has a lingering finish (more on this later). The aroma and flavor remind me of coffee you would get at Denny’s or another breakfast place. This could be a good thing or bad thing depending on what you like.
My main complaint is the after-effect in your mouth–it gets coated with a film or residue. Other coffees do this as well, especially many decafs. I’m not sure why this is. Drinking this K-Cup with sugar would probably alleviate the film, but I only like cream in my coffee, so I guess I’ll never know.
I gave my father-in-law a couple of these to try, and he wasn’t very impressed. It was too weak for him. One of his staples is Green Mountain Nantucket, to give you an idea of his taste.
This brew is not for your get-up-and-go kind of day, but more for a lazy, relaxed Saturday. Or maybe as a second-cupper to round out your morning. All in all, not too bad. If you enjoy light roasts or even medium roasts like Coffee People’s Donut Shop, this would be a good one for you to try.
