  • Caffe Ladro

    Seattle, Washington
  • Kenya Kiawamururu

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: January 2013
Origin: Central Kenya. Price: $20.00/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Bright, sweet, richly floral-toned. Honey, rose-like flowers, fresh-cut fir, zesty tangerine in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart acidity; lightly syrupy, very lively mouthfeel. Long, honey-toned finish.

Notes: Produced exclusively from trees of Kenya’s premier varieties of Arabica, the great, Bourbon-related SL28 and SL34. Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. Caffe Ladro is a Seattle-based local café chain and small-batch roaster committed to sustainably and ethically produced coffee. Visit or call 866-343-9786 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a brightly acidy yet sweetly nuanced cup.
