|Enna, Sicily, Italy
Sweet-toned aroma with an orange-toned nut character. In the small cup smooth, syrupy mouthfeel, sweetly pungent through the finish with continued orange and woody nut nuance. In milk the nut and orange notes sweeten toward chocolate but never quite bloom.
The Kili in Kili Caffe refers to Mount Kilimanjaro, suggesting a high-grown East-Africa Arabica influence in this blend, although that reference isn't particularly apparent in the cup, whose character seems most influenced by high-quality robustas.
