Blind Assessment: Sweet fruity aroma: flowers, citrus, honey and a distant hint of sage. In the cup bright, balanced acidity with medium body and a delicate mouthfeel. Floral and lemon tones dominate with hints of berry, orange blossom, black currant and molasses. Finishes crisply and cleanly, with a mild note of nuttiness in the long.
Notes: Despite stresses brought on by social unrest, charges of corruption and a confused transition toward an open market, the famed Kenya coffee auction system and its participating cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. Atomic Cafe is a coffee house on the North Shore of Massachusetts that began its refined in-house roasting program in 2005. Visit www.atomicafe.com or call 978-922-0042 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: A balanced, graceful version of one of the world's great coffee profiles.
