Blind Assessment: Rich-toned, deeply expressed, complex. Black currant, toffee, jasmine, pink grapefruit zest, baking spices in aroma and cup. Complex, bittersweet structure with juicy-bright acidity; lush, syrupy mouthfeel. Resonantly, lingering finish with notes of black currant and jasmine in the short, pink grapefruit zest and baking spices in the long — all held together by a sweet depth redolent of toffee.
Notes: Produced by members of the Kibugu Farmer's Cooperative Society and comprised of coffees from trees of the SL 28, Ruiru 11 and Batian varieties of Arabica. Committed to sourcing, roasting and brewing the finest coffees, Temple features coffee from distinguished single estates and cooperatives around the world.

The Bottom Line: A nuanced, juicy, high-toned Kenya cup expressing admired and classic descriptors associated with the origin, including hallmark black currant and spice-toned, jasmine-like flowers.
