Darkish roast influences the distinctive profile without dominating it: Deep, sweetly pungent aroma with hints of flowers, lemon, berry, cedar. Lemony, roast-muted acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Aromatics deepen in the cup, with the cedar moving forward, the flowers turning toward a spicy rose and the berries turning lightly chocolaty. Rich finish with good flavor saturation.
Grown by the Aguthi Farmers Coop Society, this coffee is produced from trees of the admired, Bourbon-derived SL28 and SL34 varieties of Arabica and the hybrid Ruiru 11. The Roasterie (motto “Live Life on the Rim”) is a longtime leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that emphasizes its commitment to "air roasting," a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.
