Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet and deeply pungent with round, complexly rich Kenya fruit: grapefruit, black currant, strawberry, supported by an undercurrent of fresh-cut fir. Ringing, resonant acidity, syrupy mouthfeel, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Despite grower discontent and sporadic social disorder, Kenya continues to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. This lot was produced exclusively from trees of Kenya’s two premier varieties of Arabica, the Bourbon-related SL28 and SL34. An integral part of New York’s coffee renaissance, Brooklyn based Café Grumpy opened its first café in 2005 and has since expanded to four locations, including their own roasting facility.

Who Should Drink It: Simply a superb coffee, as grand as it is balanced and inviting, as fine with milk as it is black.
