Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2005
Origin: East, Central, and southern Africa Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Simple but deeply rich aroma, with a distinct raisin/prune complication. The cup displays a gentle acidity wrapped in a deep, fundamental sweetness, with muted notes of dusk-blooming flowers, papaya, caramel, raisins. Simple but long, clean finish.

Notes: A blend of coffees from East, Central and southern Africa.
