Ken (91) admired this coffee a bit more than co-cupper Christy Thorns (88), who praised its "gentle grapefruit-like acidity and a nicely rounded, sweet and berry finish" but didn't carry on about it much. For his part, Ken particularly admired this coffee's citrus-toned acidity, which he found sweet, rounded, and "profoundly rich and cleanly and elegantly wine-like."
Kenya is one of the world's most admired coffee origins. Intelligentsia is a leading, award-winning Chicago-area roaster with a commitment to quality epitomized by the practice of print roast dates on its attractive coffee packaging.
