|Est. Price:||$18.50/12 ounces|

Exuberantly floral and berry-toned. Mulberry, lantana-like flowers, roasted cacao nib, hints of ripe lemon and black sage in aroma and cup. Delicate, lively acidity; plush mouthfeel. Flavor quiets but lasts in a round, resonant finish.
The Gakui wet mill is part of the Gakundu Farmers Cooperative Society, which consists of four wet mills in total. Produced from trees of the admired heirloom SL28 and SL34 varieties of Arabica, as well as the hybrid Ruiru 11. This sample consists entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading.

Who Should Drink It
Fine variation on the great Kenya cup, delicate but vivid with sweet flowers and tart berry.
