A-Stan Coffee Reviews!

So when we moved into the TOC here, we inherited a Keurig coffee robot (I still refer to it as a robot... I don't trust the damn thing, and I'm positive they never programmed The Three Rules into it) and a giant pile of K-Cups.  So, I figure it'll make for a good start for more coffee content from another continent (heh.)

Today my partner in crime, er S2/S3, SSG "Moose," who's actually a fan of the Coffee Robot(tm) decided to bust into the Pumpkin Spice from Green Mountain Coffee.  This is a seasonal flavored coffee, and no doubt left over from last fall.  The... roaster... describes it as "A delicious coffee enhanced by the creamy pumpkin spice flavors of autumn." Supposedly it's a light roast, and of unknown origin.

The coffee is indeed light, to the point that you can almost see the bottom of the cup.  I described it as "incredibly weak, with a dis-congruent aroma-to-flavor ratio, smelling quite reminiscent of a rich Spiced Chai Latte, and with the taste of a wet dishrag used to clean out a pumpkin pie pan, with only a hint of coffee.  It's only saving grace is a clean finish with only a minimal chemical preservative taste."

SSG Moose described it as "hot wet garbage."

We'll give this one a rating of a single goat (out of a herd of 10 or so.)
