Coffee Review - Kenya AA Karogoto by Willoughby's Coffee
Roast: Medium Review Date: September 2011
Origin: Nyeri County, Central Highlands, Kenya. Price: $24.99/16 ounces

Blind Assessment: Delicately complex: almond, orange, peach, a hint of milk chocolate in aroma and cup. Crisp, balanced acidity; smoothly silky mouthfeel. Sweet, flavor-saturated finish with a distinct peach-toned chocolate emerging in the long.

Notes: The Karagoto factory or wet mill processes coffee from the South Kirimukuyu Farmers’ Cooperative Society, which includes about 800 members, all smallholders averaging only 250 coffee trees or so per farm. Willoughby's Coffee & Tea is a pioneer specialty coffee roaster recently reinvigorated and refocused on artisan roasting and an extensive collection of elite single-origin coffees. Visit or call 800-388-8400 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer the delicately refreshing possibilities of the Kenya profile.


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.
