Before 1981, entrepreneur Bob Stiller discovered a cup of coffee that he enjoyed so much at a ski resort that it prompted him and a partner to buy a two-thirds stake in the small specialty coffee roasting company in Waitsfield, Vermont.
The company produced roasted beans and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters was created.
Originally a cafe and store that sold coffee beans, grounds and coffee to the public and restaurants, the company grew during a time when specialty and gourmet coffee was not as popular as it is today.
While the origins of the company is in Vermont, their Nantucket Blend Medium Roast K-Cups widely available in the United States is worth trying!
While I have talked about my love for Green Mountain Coffee’s Sumatran Reserve and Kenya, the Nantucket Blend K-Cups is in my K-Cups Top 10.
The Medium Roast blend is made of 100% Arabica Beans but it is a blend of four coffees from three continents.
Taking the berry flavor from African beans, full body from Indonesian beans and the smokiness from a French Roast, it has great taste and complex aroma with a pleasing fragrance to go along with that wonderful taste.
But I feel I get more of a kick from Sumatran Reserve and Kenya and great for those who don’t like coffee that is not too bold. It’s a very mild blend, quite neutral to be exact.
My other favorite neutral blend is the Dunkin’ Donuts Original and Starbucks Veranda but I put the Green Mountain Coffee Nantucket Blend slightly above those two in terms of taste.
Overall, a delicious mild medium roast coffee!
