Roast: Dark Review Date: November 2009
Origin: Kenya. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Sweet caramel-toned aroma with a mild roasty pungency and soft, backgrounded fruit. The sweetness and aromatic notes carry into the cup and complicate as the cup cools, revealing a distinct black currant and cherry-chocolate character. The pungent roastiness lingers softly in the finish.

Notes: This coffee is Fair Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Growers Alliance is a coffee roasting company based in Florida that was founded by coffee growers from Kenya. Their goal is to create awareness and educate coffee consumers about organic and Fair Trade single-origin coffees. Visit www.growersalliance.com or call 888-309-7397 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A moderately dark roast deepens the sweetness and rounds the dry fruit of this 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.
