Flying Goat Coffee
|Roaster Location:||Healdsburg, California|
|Coffee Origin:||South-central Kenya.|
|Review Date:||February 2003|
Blind Assessment: A sweet Kenya, seductive rather than severe with its balanced acidity and delicate, quietly complex citrus and floral tones.
Notes: AA is the highest grade of Kenya coffee, with the main grading criteria being size of bean. Like most Kenya coffees, this one is a blend of beans from different altitudes and locations designed to present a comprehensive version of the Kenya cup. Flying Goat Coffee is a boutique retail/wholesale roaster located in the wine country of northern California. Roastmaster William Anderson is responsible for the tactful roasting of this rather gentle version of the Kenya cup. Visit
Who Should Drink It : Lovers of the delicate and floral expression of the fruity East Africa cup.
