Roast: Medium Review Date: August 2008
Origin: South-central Kenya. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: 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.

Notes: Despite national coffee leadership marked by confusion and recent social disorder, Kenya cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. Counter Culture is a small-batch wholesale specialty roaster with an informative and lively website, a commitment to fine coffee and youthful, enthusiastic leadership. Visit or call 888-238-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A bright, refreshing style Kenya, floral and citrusy.
