Keurig K-cup Review-Autumn Harvest Blend

Posted on Thu, Oct 30, 2014


As many of you already know Keurig Green Mountain likes to tease us each season with the release of a limited edition coffee. I for one anticipate the arrival of each and every variety including - Pumpkin Spice, Eggnog, Gingerbread, Golden French Toast and Island Coconut.  Up until now they have always been a flavored coffee that is appropriate for the given time of year.  But, get this- Green Mountain has taken it up a notch and added a regular roast K-cup for each season as well! 

As I write this post it is October, the current seasonal coffees are of course Pumpkin Spice and the first release of Autumn Harvest.  

Autumn Harvest is a Fair Trade certified K-cup coffee.  This K-cups consists of a blend of 100% Arabica medium and French roast beans.  

I chose to brew my Autumn Harvest K-cup on the highest water setting of my Keurig.  I had a feeling with the French Roast beans that it would be able to stand up to the larger amount of water without tasting thin. The result was a nice dark coffee with a medium translucency. I could see the sides of my mug but, not the bottom. 


(Before I go any further I should mention that the aroma of this coffee is amazing.  Why is it that certain coffees just smell so darn good?)

The first sip tasted woodsy.  I guess that is what one would expect based on the name. Followed up with a hint of citrus and a chocolate finish.  The layers were prevalent and noticeable, simply put- this coffee is full of depth.The mouth feel was pleasant, I would not call it silky but, easy to drink none the less, with a medium body.

If you are a fan on Vermont Country Blend or Nantucket, this K-cup is so right up your alley.  All medium roast drinkers will be quite happy with Autumn Harvest.  Light roast and dark roast fans- the jury is hung.  It depends how extreme you are with your preferences.  

Have you tried Autumn Harvest yet?  What did you think?
