Blind Assessment: Gently pungent in aroma and cup: cedar, grapefruit, lemon, with rounding hints of dark chocolate. Round, rich acidity; lively, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor carries deeply into a long, sweet finish.
Notes: Produced mainly from trees of the admired, Bourbon-derived SL28 and SL34 varieties. Grown by the Gikanda Cooperative and processed at the distinguished, award-winning Gichatha-Ini Factory. Wonderstate Coffee, formerly Kickapoo Coffee, is an award-winning roaster based in rural Wisconsin known for their commitment to guaranteeing higher pay for farmers and being the country’s first 100% solar powered roastery.

Who Should Drink It: Refreshing coffee; think the sweet, pink sort of grapefruit with deepening resonances of cedar and dark chocolate.
