Coffee Review - Nyeri Peaberry by The Roasterie
  • The Roasterie

    Kansas City, Missouri
  • Nyeri Peaberry of Kenya

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: June 2013
Origin: Nyeri growing region, south-central Kenya Price: $16.22/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Sweetly tart berry notes suggest blackcurrant, blackberry, black cherry. Rich floral and rounding oak complication. Roast-rounded, balanced acidity; silky mouthfeel. Long, deeply flavor-saturated, sweetly drying finish.

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. The Roasterie (motto “Live Life on the Rim”) is a longtime leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that emphasizes its commitment to "air roasting," a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.

Who Should Drink It: Sweetly dry, berry-toned Kenya elegance in a moderately dark-roasted format.
