Blind Assessment: Elegantly bright, richly juicy, elaborately complete. Toffee, pomelo, plum marmalade, star jasmine, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with lyrically balanced acidity; syrupy, viscous mouthfeel. Resonant, long, satisfying finish.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 10 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2021.Despite grower discontent, unclear government coffee policy and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, the famed Kenya coffee auction system and its participating cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees.
