Blind Assessment:

Very sweet; subtle and intricate. Lush star fruit, red currant, honeysuckle, a hint of cinnamon in aroma and cup. Crisp yet juicy acidity; softly plush mouthfeel. Fruit, flowers and cinnamon all carry into a richly and roundly drying finish.

Notes:

Despite challenges ranging from unclear government coffee policy and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands to chronically unstable weather, the famed Kenya coffee auction system and its participating cooperatives continue to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. JBC Coffee Roasters’ vision is simple: “let the coffee lead the way” through sourcing and roasting the best and most unique coffees available and rewarding the farmers who grow those coffees with substantial premiums.
