Blind Assessment: Intense, exuberantly complex aroma: orange, grapefruit, honey, cedar, black currant. In the cup the acidity is intense and sweet, the mouthfeel syrupy, the flavor continuingly complex, dry yet lush: black currant, grapefruit, wine, a hint of milk chocolate. The finish is superb: saturated with grapefruit and chocolate, sweet, rich, 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. 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.
