Kenyan Highland Cooperatives by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Review |
Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: October 2007
Origin: South-central Kenya. Price: $8.95/10oz

Blind Assessment: The aroma is very deep and sweet-toned with lush references to banana, coconut, dusk flowers. In the cup the acidity is extraordinarily rich and round-toned, the mouthfeel supple, the nuance opulent with coconut, red wine, chocolate and floral notes. Rich, long, flavor-saturated finish.

Notes: This coffee is certified Fair-Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Despite national coffee leadership marred by confusion and apparent corruption, Kenya cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. Green Mountain is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles. Visit or call 800-223-6768 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A coffee as extravagant as it is elegant.


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.
