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.

Flavor Chart

"Great balance of vibrance and sweetness. The right body brings harmony to sparkling acidity and toasted nut tones."
— Lindsey Bolger

Customers are saying...
I first tasted Green Mountain Breakfast Blend in the early late 1980s-early 1990s in Plattsburgh, NY…. When I tasted a cup, my reaction was “This is what coffee is supposed to taste like!”

Critics are saying...

Rating: 89 Points (out of 100)

Aroma of stone fruit – peaches and plums – with a subtle suggestion of tangy white wine and herbs. In the cup sweet and balanced overall, with a juicy mouthfeel and hints of nut, tropical fruit and aromatic wood. Mild nutty tones linger in the finish.

— Kenneth Davids, CoffeeReview, August, 2008

Notes From Origin

One of the components of Breakfast Blend is the Costa Rican coffee that we buy from the Vargas family in the Central Valley of Costa Rica in Alajuela. On the horizon rises the majestic form of Poas, the world's largest volcanic crater. Against this impressive backdrop is set Doka, the garden-like estate that has been lovingly farmed by the same family for four generations.

The Vargas family has struck the perfect balance between tradition and technological progress. On any given day, Don Rodrigo Vargas is just as likely to be found examining the results of his most recent agricultural experiment as he is overseeing the century-old ritual of drying coffee on Doka's sun-bathed patios. The Vargas family is involved in sugar, dairy, and coffee. There are 6 families on 32 farms totaling over 1000 acres, 22% of which is conserved, 60% is shade-grown coffee; there are three mills, 278 full–time employees and 3,100 coffee pickers.

In March 2008, our own Lindsey Bolger, Director of Coffee Sourcing and Relationships, was invited to Doka to cup (a rigorous and objective form of sensory evaluation) some of their fine coffee. As we've been buying from the Vargas family for years, a number of our employees have visited, including Deb Crowther, one of our cuppers and green bean buyer. While Don Rodrigo hasn't visited yet, his daughter Natalie was here in Waterbury, VT, in the fall of 2007 for a visit.
