Kenya AA Nyeri Tatu by Johnson Brothers Coffee Roasters Review |
Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: June 2008
Origin: South-central Kenya. Price: $12.95/10oz

Blind Assessment: Buttery aroma: nut, flowers, dry berry. Rich acidity, medium body. The elegantly pungent berry note cuppers call black currant dominates in the cup, but supported by a profound underlying sweetness that gives the berry a dark chocolate depth. Flowers revive in the fine, rich, flavor-saturated finish.

Notes: Despite national coffee leadership marred by confusion and infrastructure threatened by recent social disorder, Kenya cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. Johnson Brothers Coffee Roasters is a distinguished small-batch roasting company. Visit or call 608-256-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A tactful roast rounds and balances this crisp, superb Kenya.


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.
