Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2013
Origin: Nyeri region, central Kenya. Price: $16.00/12 ounces
Complex, intense, classic. Pungent black currant, blackberry, plum, night-blooming flowers, fresh-cut cedar in aroma and cup. Sweetly balanced, lavishly rich acidity. Big, syrupy mouthfeel. The pungent berry notes in particular carry into a deep, long, flavor-saturated finish.

Roast: Medium Review Date: August 2008
Origin: Kenya Price: NA
A bright, citrusy profile. Very sweet-toned aroma with tight-knit complexity: flowers, pipe tobacco, and a soft, orangy citrus. In the cup pronounced acidity, medium body, richly distinct floral notes with continued citrus notes that turn toward a sweet but tart grapefruit under the influence of the acidity.

Roast: NA Review Date: March 1999
Origin: Price: NA
This Kenya attracted the highest rating achieved by any coffee since Coffee Review began its panel cuppings. Judging from comments alone it would seem that its bright, vibrant acidity powered it to the top, but I suspect that the ultimate reason it prevailed over other samples in the cupping is its deep, echoing dimension. This coffee didn't just tickle or please the palate, it resonated on it like the stroke of a deliciously humming gong. Minority report: Despite the high score, two panelists felt the powerful acidity imbalanced and overly simplified the profile.

Roast: NA Review Date: March 1999
Origin: Price: NA
The brightly assertive, sweetly fruity acidity that Kenya enthusiasts love is on full display here, cradled by a richly textured body. As a bonus we get the treasured Kenya berry notes, although the panel wasn't sure whether they were blueberry, blackberry, strawberry or just "berry." Berries and all, I found this otherwise splendid Kenya a touch shallow in dimension compared to the highest-rated Gaturiri.
