Kenya AA Lenana
|Roaster Location:||Lancaster, Pennsylvania|
|Coffee Origin:||South-central Kenya.|
|Review Date:||November 2007|
Blind Assessment: Deep, complex aroma: smoke, grapefruit, berry, hints of butterscotch and dark chocolate. In the cup delightful in front: crisply sweet, delicately roasty with grapefruit, dry berry and cocoaish chocolate notes. Remains quite sweet and rich in the short finish; grows slightly heavy in the long.
Notes: Despite national coffee leadership marred by confusion and apparent corruption, Kenya 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. Apres is a seller of gourmet teas, coffee and chocolate presented in impressively distinctive packaging at reasonable prices. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who appreciate shimmers of brightness and crisply elegant dry fruit in a dark-roast presentation.
