Blind Assessment: Crisp but juicy. Dark chocolate, raspberry, ripe plum, walnut in aroma and cup. Balanced, rich acidity; light but silky mouthfeel. The finish is bittersweet and slightly drying with walnut and chocolate hints.
Notes: Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. French Mission is an heirloom, Bourbon-related East Africa tree variety. This is a dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees. Thirty-Thirty is a small-batch coffee roasting company located in Peoria Illinois that is committed to sourcing the finest green coffees and to expressing the individuality and character of those coffees through the roasting process all the way to the cup.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a crisply dry but complexly juicy, fruit-toned cup.
