Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet-savory. Date, hop flowers, tamarind, oak, cane sugar in aroma and cup. Richly bittersweet structure with lively acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. Sweetly tart finish leads with tamarind notes, supported by sweet aromatic wood.
Notes: Despite grower discontent, unclear government coffee policy and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, the famed Kenya coffee auction system and its participating cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. Mr. Chao Coffee is a subsidiary of Intekeco Co., Ltd, based in New Taipei City, Taiwan, which provides both green and roasted coffee to wholesale and retail clients.

The Bottom Line: A savory-leaning Kenya cup — bittersweet with appealing floral tartness rounded by notes of rich cane sugar.
