Blind Assessment:

Those who value a roundly assertive Kenya with rich, complexly stated sweetness enveloping tart fruit notes. An almost shockingly low price for a Kenya this distinctive and pleasing.

Notes:

AA is the highest grade of Kenya coffee based on bean size and freedom from physical imperfections. Purchased as whole bean in a 13-ounce metal can with soft, peel-off foil top with inset one-way degassing valve at a Trader’s Joe’s location in northern California. Trader Joe’s is an innovative discount gourmet and natural foods supermarket chain with 457 stores in more than twenty states. Visit www.traderjoes.com for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who value a roundly assertive Kenya with rich, complexly stated sweetness enveloping tart fruit notes. An almost shockingly low price for a Kenya this distinctive and pleasing.
