|Est. Price:||NT $520/227 grams|
|Review Date:||October 2022|
Blind Assessment: Sweetly sweet-savory. Red currant, violet, oregano, cocoa nib, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with vibrant, balanced acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The subtle finish consolidates to notes of red currant and cocoa nib.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers of the Rumukia Farmers Cooperative Society from trees of the SL28 and SL34 varieties of Arabica, and processed at the Maganjo mill by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). AKA Coffee is a specialty nano-roaster based in Taiwan. Visit www.facebook.com/akacoffee.shop for more information.
The Bottom Line: A delicate yet juicy Kenya cup with a floral throughline and savory-sweet herbal notes.
