J. Martinez & Company
Kenya AA, Mirichu Estate, Dark Roast
|Roaster Location:||Atlanta, Georgia|
|Coffee Origin:||South-central Kenya|
|Review Date:||June 2003|
A Kenya in the more delicate mode: dry yet sweet, crisply fruity with grapefruit, apricot and black currant notes. Turns from crisp to slightly astringent in the finish.
Purchased at Dean & Deluca, whole bean in sealed 8-ounce foil bag with one-way valve in an attractive box; $22.00/pound. Kenya is one of the world's great coffee origins. AA is the highest grade based on fewest visual defects and largest bean size. J. Martinez specializes in presenting elite single-origin coffees in impressive, wine-world-toned packaging.
