Blind Assessment: Low-toned, balanced aroma: nut, ripe citrus, flowers. Tart, lemony acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Aromatics turn rounder and riper in the cup: sweet citrus, gently tart berry, nut-toned cocoa. The cocoa and lemon in particular linger in a rich, clean finish.
Notes: From the Kiryama wet mill or washing station from trees of the Jackson and Mibirizi cultivars, both related to the heirloom Bourbon variety. Terroir is a microroaster focusing on elite single-origin coffees. It was a pioneer in the revival of medium roast styles designed to foreground the character of the green coffee. Terroir is the creation of George Howell, one of the world's leading coffee visionaries. Visit www.terroircoffee.com or call 866-444-5282 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Finely balanced Africa Bourbon-style cup, without the aromatic intensity of a fine Kenya yet poised and resonant.
