Arabica Express Kenya AA
|Roaster Location:||Narragansett, Rhode Island|
|Coffee Origin:||South-central Kenya|
|Review Date:||December 2005|
(As brewed in a Melitta One:One single-serve brewing device in a Podhead Arabica Express brand 44mm pod at a cup volume of 5 ounces): Subdued, faintly rich aroma, with wine and walnut notes and regrettable hints of cardboard. In the cup medium bodied with a roundly acidy, wine-like character and a touch of lush sweetness, though the cardboard still lurks. Rich in the short finish, mildly astringent in the long.
Despite declining production and unrest in coffee growing regions linked to alleged corruption, Kenya continues to produce some of the world's most distinctive coffees. The Melitta One:One was one of the earliest single-serve brewing devices to enter the North American market. Podhead is a one-stop Internet shopping site for paper-format pods, both branded espresso pods as well as two series of its own non-espresso pods, the 44mm Arabica Express pods designed for the Melitta One:One and compatible brewers, and the Arabica Express Sensation 62mm line designed for Senseo, Black & Decker, Mr. Coffee, and other compatible brewers.
