CLOSED: Giveaway: Green Mountain Coffee Signature Sampler

About Green Mountain Coffee
Coffee is more than just something to drink. It connects us to each other, and to the rest of the world. We’re passionate about great coffee and we’re anxious to share that passion with you. So join us in this glance at the surprisingly rich and complex story of coffee – how and where it’s grown, the many ways it can be prepared, and the artistry involved along the way.

I had a chance for the first time to try out 3 different types of coffee from Green Mountain Coffee. Below are the pictures, descriptions & my thoughts about each coffee!

We're perhaps best known for our Signature Coffees. This sampler highlights three of our customers' favorites — Breakfast Blend, Vermont Country Blend® and our Dark Magic® Espresso Blend

This sampler highlights three of our customers' favorite Signature Coffees — Breakfast Blend, Vermont Country Blend and Dark Magic Espresso — each of which presents a different roast style. There's probably no better way to experience how the roast itself shapes the flavors of our coffees.

Breakfast Blend

This is our classic, lively and vibrant New England breakfast cup. It offers a snappy, crisp and citrusy Central American coffee matched with the sweetness, body and depth of an Indonesian bean to create a wakeful blend that won’t try to compete with your orange juice in terms of its brightness.

This was my favorite out of the 3, because it was my type of coffee! The Breakfast Brand is not too bold but not to weak either but just perfect. I really like the taste which is just right for me especially in the morning when I need a perfect cup of coffee.

Fair Trade Vermont Country Blend

Vermont Country Blend is a mixture of light and dark beans. The result is coffee that is sweet, rich and aromatic, with a pleasant lingering finish. This coffee is one of our most popular blends.

This coffee is a slight touch darker than I am use to, but very good. This is a perfect cup of coffee in the morning if you need a little kick start to your day! To me if was very unique in taste which was refreshing!

An engaging blend that reveals itself in layers. A darker-roasted base offers mellow, toasty flavors and a velvety mouthfeel, while lighter-roasted, select American beans provide clarity, and a winning finish. The result is a blend that is at once brisk and bright, yet undeniably smooth.

Dark Magic Espresso Blend

Spellbinding complexity, crafted for sweet and intense espresso. Excellent as a drip coffee too!

Ah ... espresso. Alchemy in a cup, and the very essence of coffee. A properly prepared espresso is a tazza of bittersweet liqueur: thick, rich and languid on the tongue, topped with a dense layer of copper-colored crema — the hallmark of an expertly crafted cup.

If you like Expresso type coffees you will love this one! I'm not crazy about espresso blends but I don't think they are awful either. The description above is perfect in my opinion. I also used it for my Frappe machine & it worked out perfect. I like it better for Frappes because of the dark taste.
