Roast: NA Review Date: March 2000
Origin: Kenya Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: A pleasant, if odd-tasting, Kenya: full body, very little acidity, dominated by a sweet, rounded agreeably spicy flavor that suggests cardamom, cinnamon, pepper, even chicory. The most recognizable Kenya characteristic of this coffee is a deep, ringing dimension.

Notes: A pleasant, if odd-tasting, Kenya: full body, very little acidity, dominated by a sweet, rounded agreeably spicy flavor. Decaffeinated by the solvent-free Swiss Water Process. AA is the highest grade of Kenya coffee, based mainly on bean size. Oasis Coffee is a wholesale roaster founded in 1987. San Alto is its premium specialty coffee line.

Who Should Drink It: Those who want something a bit different, in this case something mouthfilling, sweet-toned and spicy. Not for lovers of the typically acidy, wine-and-berry-toned Kenya. Makes an unusual and interesting espresso.
