Roast: Dark Review Date: September 2002
Origin: South-central Kenya Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: The moderately dark-roast style mutes the Kenya fruit and gives it a roasty, tart pineapple twist that softens toward a toasty chocolate in the finish. The darkish roast may transform the Kenya character, but the transformation is quite pleasurable in its own right.

Notes: Tatu is a cooperative located in the Nyeri growing region above 5,000 feet in elevation. Besides pursuing the "Small Batch Artisan Roasting" it proclaims in its motto, Ancora Coffee Roasters operates both a well-known Madison, Wisconsin coffee house and a colorful and engaging website.

Who Should Drink It: This elegant dark roast coffee, with character and complexity but without bitterness, should appeal to those who drink dark roasts for reasons of pleasure rather than machismo.
