|Roaster Location:||Jacksonville, Florida|

Sweet caramel-toned aroma with a mild roasty pungency and soft, backgrounded fruit. The sweetness and aromatic notes carry into the cup and complicate as the cup cools, revealing a distinct black currant and cherry-chocolate character. The pungent roastiness lingers softly in the finish.

A moderately dark roast deepens the sweetness and rounds the dry fruit of this Kenya.
