Blind Assessment: Sweetly savory, chocolate-toned. Baker’s chocolate, singed cedar, gardenia, plum, molasses in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet-savory structure; delicate, satiny mouthfeel. The richly drying finish centers around baker’s chocolate and pleasantly smoky aromatic wood notes.
Notes: Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. Evie’s Café, based in Chia-Yi Taiwan, specializes in fine roasted coffees as well as pour-overs and cold-brews. Visit https://m.facebook.com/eviescafe88/ for more information.
The Bottom Line: A friendly Kenya cup that leads with crisp chocolate and deep floral notes, with a medium-dark roast profile that encourages a pleasing suggestion of smoky aromatic wood.
