The Embellished Bean
|Roaster Location:||LaGrangeville, New York|
|Coffee Origin:||South-central Kenya|
|Review Date:||May 2003|
Blind Assessment: The softer style of Kenya: sweet, flirty, utterly seductive, but with a gently acidy backbone. In the aroma crisp temperate fruit tones, apple or pear perhaps, in the cup flowers and chocolate.
Notes: AA is the highest grade of Kenya coffee, based mainly on bean size. Embellished Bean sells its (often flavor-embellished) beans over the Internet and at various Hudson Valley, New York cultural events. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Lovers of gentle, aromatic teas and delicate white table wines.
