Green Mountain’s Breakfast Blend

I received this K Cup as another product to review from the folks at Cross Country Cafe.

Green Mountain is probably one of my favorite K Cup brands. They offer a nice variety of roasts with something to please everyone. However their Breakfast Blend is probably one of my least favorite roasts of all time, but do keep in mind that that is mostly based off of personal preference.

Green Mountain’s Breakfast Blend is very light with a relatively high acidity level. It is fruity, sort of citrus-y, and crisp – a flavor profile to be paired with something along the lines of a blueberry muffin or a nice cranberry orange scone. This is a what I consider to be a good breakfast coffee.

Due to my natural distaste towards lighter roasts, I give Green Mountain’s Breakfast Blend a scouring of 2.5 stars out of 5. Its acidity level is too much for my liking. I do recommend this K Cup to coffee drinkers that do not care for a darker roast and still find a medium roast to be too strong.
