Blind Assessment:

Bright, richly sweet, complex. Red currant, lilac, dark chocolate, lime zest, redwood in aroma and cup. Sweetly savory in structure, with juicy acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The balanced finish is resonant with notes of red currant and dark chocolate, with hints of lime zest.

Notes:

Produced by farmers of the Mutungati Cooperative from trees of the SL28, SL34, and Ruiru 11 varieties of Arabica. Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. Propeller is a Toronto-based micro-roaster with a dedication to careful selection and exceptional craft roasting of high-end coffees.
