Brief Intro to the Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Brand
If you are using k cups, then you can thank Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. Green Mountain’s beginnings go back to Vermont in 1981 when a small café roasting and serving up specialty coffees started to get requests from local hospitality businesses for their coffees. Demand grew and so did Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. By 2006 they had acquired Keurig which laid the foundation for a robust single cup coffee product line which would have GMCR sell over 1 billion k cups in 2008. Acquisitions and partnerships over the years have brought many popular coffee brands such as Tully’s, Caribou, Starbuck’s, Newman’s Own, Timothy’s and many more under the GMCR umbrella.
How Does Green Mountain Coffee – Nantucket Blend Measure Up as a K Cup?
Green Mountain Coffee Nantucket Blend k cups are a perfect fit for those that love a medium roast with a smooth flavor. Enough flavor to prevent it from being weak, but not so strong that it tastes bitter or too acidic. You can taste the coffee, it doesn’t get lost in milk or creamer. Well, depending on how much you use, of course. But, if you don’t like a little coffee with your creamer, this k cup delivers a full-bodied flavorful coffee. I brew using the 8 ounce brew size and it is not watered down at all. It emits a nice aroma as well. This one is also in my line-up for back-ups for Coffee People Donut Shop k cups. I keep my eye out for sales and snatch it up when I find good Nantucket Blend k cup prices!
Overall, I give it a 4.5 out of 5.
