Barnie's Coffee & Tea
|Roaster Location:||Orlando, Florida|
|Review Date:||March 1997|
Blind Assessment: The Kenya wine tones are lighter here, more Bordeaux than Burgundy. The profile is also simpler than in many Kenyas, but the high, singing tones of the acidity please until the aftertaste, when they turn slightly astringent.
Notes: A simple Kenya profile with high, singing tones of acidity. Grade AA
Who Should Drink It: You could see this one as a compromise coffee: It retains the Kenya profile but the acidity is crisper and brighter, more Latin-American than East African. Should be excellent drip-brewed and drunk black.
