Bucks County Coffee
Kenya AA, 2003 Crop
|Roaster Location:||Langhorne, Pennsylvania|
|Coffee Origin:||South-central Kenya|
|Review Date:||May 2004|
Blind Assessment: An enormous, enveloping coffee, grandly acidy yet voluptuously sweet. So sweet the term acidy becomes almost moot, though its dry rigor necessarily grounds and complicates the sweetness. Cabernet wine and ripe cherry notes. Anonymously nominated.
Notes: Always one of the world's finest coffee origins, Kenya is having a particularly impressive year. Bucks County Coffee has managed to stay close to its micro-roasting roots throughout its expansion from a tiny roasting machine in a carriage house to one of the country's largest regional specialty coffee chains.

Who Should Drink It: Those who can handle a flawless marrying of power and elegance.
