Deeply sweet-savory. Black tea, dark chocolate, golden raisin, sandalwood, tiger lily in aroma and cup. Roundly sweet with crisp acidity; silky, buoyant mouthfeel. Sandalwood and black tea lead in the finish.
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 traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried) at the Gichithaini mill. Vivid Coffee Roasters is a wholesale and retail roaster and café based in Burlington, Vermont. Visit www.vividcoffee.com for more information.
A pleasing cup for those who prefer a deeper, savory-leaning Kenya profile to the brighter style. Particularly lively, lilting mouthfeel.
