  • Klatch Coffee

  • Kenya Kagumoini Mugaga Cooperative

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: February 2013
Origin: Karatina district, Nyeri growing region, Kenya. Price: $19.95/12 ounces
 

Blind Assessment: Sweetly tart, complexly floral. Honey, honeysuckle, lavender, hints of barley and fir in aroma and cup. Soft but brisk acidity; light but very silky mouthfeel. The finish is flavor-saturated and quite rich and deep for such a delicate coffee.

Notes: This coffee was produced exclusively from trees of Kenya’s premier varieties of Arabica, the great, Bourbon-related SL 28 and SL 34. Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. This particular Kenya is produced by members of the Mugaga Cooperative Society at an elevation of approximately 5,000 feet. Klatch Coffee is an award-winning small-batch roasting company in the Los Angeles area whose resident barista and trainer, Heather Perry, won both the 2003 and 2007 United States Barista Championships brewing a Klatch Coffee espresso blend.

Who Should Drink It: Anyone who enjoys a briskly sweet morning cup; the particularly complex floral notes range from bitter and hoppy to lushly honeyish.

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.
