Blind Assessment: Dry berry notes (the famous Kenya "black currant"), lemon, dusk flowers and a hint of dark chocolate open in the intense aroma and carry with pungent authority into the cup. Balanced acidity, supple mouthfeel, deep, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Despite stresses brought on by social unrest and a confused transition toward an open market, the famed Kenya coffee auction system and its participating cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. AA is the highest grade of Kenya coffee based on bean size. Willoughby's Coffee & Tea is a pioneer specialty coffee roaster recently reinvigorated and refocused on artisan roasting and a very extensive collection of elite single-origin coffees.

Who Should Drink It: Classic Kenya: pungent, berry-toned, elegant.
