Coffee Review - Kenya Igutha by Beansmith Coffee
  • Beansmith Coffee

    Omaha, Nebraska
  • Kenya Igutha

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: February 2013
Origin: Nyeri growing region, south-central Kenya Price: $14.95/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Sweet, lyrical, meadowy. Honey, meadow flowers, richly pungent moist pipe tobacco, a hint of toffee in aroma and in cup, where the flowers deepen and sweeten toward an opulent honeysuckle. Delicate but lushly soft acidity; lightly silky mouthfeel. Very rich, honeyish finish with a savory hint.

Notes: Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. Beansmith Coffee is a small-batch roasting company serving the Omaha region that believes that coffee drinkers should know as much as they can about the coffee they drink, and that there is a story behind every cup, one worth exploring. Visit or call 866-663-5295 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: The cushiony, plush acidity and floral sweetness makes this an accessible and inviting version of the great Kenya profile.


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.
