Blind Assessment: Most panelists found the acidity too dominating here and the rest of the profile too neutral, making for a sort of one-dimensional Kenya cup. "A test-tube Kenya," complained one. "Very bright acidity, but not able to pick out other threads," wrote another. Finally: "Very citrusy. I'll score it high for acidity, but would like to try a darker roast in hopes [that] more depth and sweetness emerge." I found the cup pleasant but underpowered.

Notes: A one-dimensional Kenya cup with very bright acidity. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. This Kenya AA sample is from an auction lot from a single cooperatively owned Kenya mill.

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.
