Torreo Coffee and Tea
|Roaster Location:||Philadelphia, Pennsylvania|
|Review Date:||October 1998|
The winy acidity characteristic of Kenyas here is pungent and deep, without a trace of fruit or shimmer of berry. It is possible the coffee has faded a bit in storage. Still, a powerful coffee that offers an interesting twist to the Kenya theme.

Who Should Drink It
The best-seller factor:The fact that a consistently fine origin like a Kenya is a best seller is no surprise to me. The fact that this particular best-selling Kenya displays winy notes that are deep and without much brightness at the top may be coincidental, or it could be one more indication that many Americans prefer less acidy profiles than do coffee professionals.
