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

Blind Assessment: An intensely complex aroma: flowers, lemon, plum, pungent fresh-cut pine, toast. Fruit tones persist in the sweet acidity and delicately juicy mouthfeel. Balanced, rounded flavor: orangy sweetness to heady flowers to gentle chocolate notes. Finishes cleanly, with mild citrus notes that sweeten in the long.

Notes: Despite stresses brought on by social unrest, charges of corruption and a confused transition toward an open market, the famed Kenya coffee auction system and its participating cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. Counter Culture Coffee is a small-batch wholesale specialty roaster with an informative and lively website, a commitment to exceptional coffee and youthful, enthusiastic leadership. Visit or call 888-238-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those looking for intense sweetness, flowers and fruit in an exceptional Kenya.
