Blind Assessment:

Deeply sweet, richly savory. Lilac, dried black currant, grapefruit zest, tamarind, myrrh in aroma and cup. Balanced in structure, complete; crisply sweet-savory. Plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The sweet, high-toned finish leads with lilac and tamarind in the short, while pink grapefruit zest and myrrh ring into the long.


Produced from trees of the celebrated SL28 and SL34 varieties of Arabica associated with Kenya’s finest coffees. Wet-processed using meticulous traditional methods at the Gatomboya washing station operated by the Barichu Cooperative Society. Dragonfly Coffee is a Boulder, Colorado-based micro-roaster that produces high-quality coffees and supports worthy causes.

The Bottom Line: Hits all the classic Kenya notes: pungent with deep fruit and florals, supported by a simultaneously bright yet savory structure.
