Blind Assessment: High-toned, juicy, complex. Red currant, toffee, grapefruit marmalade, star jasmine, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart with richly vibrant, balanced acidity; very full, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. The resonant, lingering finish carries forward the multi-layered nuance of the cup.
Notes: Produced by smallholding members of the Gikanda Farmers Cooperative Society, from trees of the SL28, SL34 and Ruiru 11 varieties of Arabica, and processed by the washed method at the Gichathaini Factory.

The Bottom Line: A very refined, elegant and powerful Kenya cup — juicy, sweet, rich, complex, deep.
