Blind Assessment: In the aroma cedary pungency, caramel, hints of low-toned fruit and flowers. In the cup a sweet-toned, balanced acidity, silky mouthfeel, continued cedar-toned pungency and a sweetly tart citrus -- lime or Meyer lemon. Continued hint of flowers. The lime-lemon suggestion carries into a simple, clean finish.
Notes: Despite stresses brought on by charges of corruption and a confusing transition toward an open market, the famed Kenya coffee auction system and its participating cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. This coffee is AA grade, the highest regularly traded grade of Kenya coffee based on bean size and least number of physical imperfections. Headquartered in Orange County, California, Diedrich Coffee is a publicly-traded specialty coffee company that offers a range of whole bean and single serve coffees at retail locations and online.
