  • Kenya Karindundu

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: August 2006
Origin: Nyeri growing region, south-central Kenya Price: $13.95/12oz

Blind Assessment: Intense, lyrically sweet coffee: honey, flowers and the pure notes of coffee fruit carry from aroma to cup; the acidity is tart but caramelly, even buttery. Impeccably clean, delicately rich finish.

Notes: Terroir is a relatively recently established microroaster selling only elite single-origin coffees, no blends. It specializes in medium roast styles designed to foreground the character of the green coffee. Terroir is the creation of George Howell, one of the world's leading coffee visionaries.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of everything classic yet passionate. The perfectly struck medium roast develops the coffee without a trace of either greenness or graininess on one hand or roast taste on the other.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
