  • Kenya AA, Mirichu Estate, Dark Roast

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: June 2003
Origin: South-central Kenya Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A Kenya in the more delicate mode: dry yet sweet, crisply fruity with grapefruit, apricot and black currant notes. Turns from crisp to slightly astringent in the finish.

Notes: Purchased at Dean & Deluca, whole bean in sealed 8-ounce foil bag with one-way valve in an attractive box; $22.00/pound. Kenya is one of the world's great coffee origins. AA is the highest grade based on fewest visual defects and largest bean size. J. Martinez specializes in presenting elite single-origin coffees in impressive, wine-world-toned packaging.

Who Should Drink It: Those who wear pressed linens (and can afford them).


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.
