Kenyan Highland Cooperatives by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Review |
Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: August 2009
Origin: South-central Kenya Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Delicately complex aroma of flowers, tangerine and honey. In the cup, smooth mouthfeel, balanced, richly floral-toned acidity, and elegant notes of orange, lemon and yes, more flowers. Finishes cleanly with the flavor nuances lingering softly.

Notes: This coffee is Fair-Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Despite recent social and political disorder and a partial and rather confusing transition from auction system to open market, Kenya cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters 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 balanced, impressively refreshing and floral-toned Kenya with Fair-Trade credentials.


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.
