Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: October 2004
Origin: South-central Kenya Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The roast dominates the coffee, but agreeably so. Co-cupper Christy Thorns: "Multi-layered with roasty bitter chocolate, stewed prunes, raisins, and sweet spice. (89)" Ken: "Rich, deeply roasty and bittersweet, excellent dimension, dry berry and floral tones shimmer behind the roastiness. Chocolate toward the finish. (88)" Christy concludes that, although the profile may lack top-notes, a "syrupy body makes for a powerhouse of a cup."

Notes: Kenya is one of the world's most admired coffee origins. Coffee Emergency is a husband-and-wife-owned and operated small-batch roasting company and mobile coffee retailer with a modest but rather coffee-savvy website. Visit or call 402-202-5336 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy distinctive origins through the prism of a deep roast.


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.
