Summer Sunrise Blend is a limited edition coffee roasted by the fine folks at Green Mountain. Each season Green Mountain releases a Kcup that is apropos of the time of year, Summer Sunrise and Island Coconut are the summer choices and I for one think they are a great flavor fit!
Summer Sunrise is Fair Trade certified (as are all of the seasonal K cup coffee pods). This is a medium roast coffee made from 100% Arabica beans and it is Orthodox Union Kosher, gluten, and calorie-free!
I chose to brew my Summer Sunrise on the 10 ounces setting of my Keurig 2.0 (that would be the highest water setting for classic Keurig users). The result was a fairly dark coffee, with very minimal translucency. I definitely could not see the bottom of my mug and just ever so slightly on the sides.
The aroma was a bit disappointing, as in non-existent. I love a great smelling coffee, it just adds to the whole experience but, maybe my sniffer just wasn't working great today.
The first sip offered a light woodsy taste and I have said this many times- Green Mountain hits the nail on the head every gosh darn time they name a coffee and this is no exception. This coffee tastes like a summer feel- upbeat and happy. There are hints of flower and citrus but that is very minimal and does not make its presence known until the back end. Summer Sunrise is a medium roast coffee but, to me, it is a bit on the lighter side.
