Blind Assessment:

Nuanced, multi-layered, richly sweet-savory. Black currant, dark chocolate, sweet marjoram, narcissus, maple syrup in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with savory underpinnings; vibrant, juicy acidity. The saturated finish consolidates to black currant, chocolate and marjoram.

Notes:

Despite challenges ranging from contested government coffee policy and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands to chronically unstable weather, Kenya continues to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. Founded in 2015, the Greater Goods mission is to enrich the lives of coffee-drinkers through passion, creativity, innovation and commitment to the consistency of the specialty coffee the company roasts, and through the local causes supported with its proceeds.

The Bottom Line: A beautiful Kenya cup with layers of intrigue, from the classic cocoa-toned currant note to the pleasing twist of sweetly savory herbs.
