Roast: Medium Review Date: December 1997
Origin: Kenya Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: The exhilaratingly bright, complexly winy acidity turns slightly hard and herbal as it settles on the palate, limiting the vivacity of the first impression. As the coffee cools the profile relaxes, allowing some rich sweetness to emerge behind the acidity.

Notes: A special selection for the holiday, this coffee's acidity is exhilaratingly bright and complexly winy. As the coffee cools the profile relaxes, allowing some rich sweetness to emerge. Kevin Knox, coffee buyer at Allegro, saves what he considers the best lots of the year's crop of Kenya AA to offer as a special selection for the holidays.

Who Should Drink It: The holiday factor:Hearty and authoritative enough for pumpkin pies and similar faux-country pleasures; lively enough to overcome post-prandial moroseness.

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.
