Blind Assessment: A high score but a relatively low wow quotient. Apparently panelists valued this coffee for its rich balance and deeply matrixed fruit; the body was described variously as full, heavy, and thick. However, several panelists felt the cup was a bit faded, restrained, "past-croppish." Perhaps this is an instance when the mid-season timing of the cupping did prejudice the cupping results.

Notes: This big, full-bodied coffee displays a rich balance and deeply matrixed fruit. Awarded the second highest score ever by the Coffee Review Cupping Board. 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.
