Kenya AA- Green
|Review Date:||March 1999|
Blind Assessment: Consensus found the acidity in this Kenya pleasantly fruity and sweet in the nose but disturbingly sharp in the cup and astringent in the aftertaste. Again, a slightly darker roast might help tame the sharpness. A few of us found solace in what struck us as a round, rather richly textured body.
Notes: The acidity in this coffee is pleasantly fruity and sweet in the nose but sharp in the cup and astringent in the aftertaste. The body is round, richly textured. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. This Kenya AA sample is from an auction lot from a single cooperatively owned Kenya mill.
