Kenya Grand Cru
|Roaster Location:||Thornton, Colorado|
|Coffee Origin:||South-central Kenya|
|Review Date:||June 2003|
Intense but sweet, fruit-toned acidity; delicate but rich in presence and mouthfeel. Lemon and grapefruit notes in the aroma; lemon and floral tones in the cup. The finish is lightly astringent but rich.
Sold whole bean in sealed 12-ounce foil bag with one-way valve; $17.32/pound. Kenya is one of the world's great coffee origins. Allegro Coffee, a subsidiary of Whole Foods Market, offers the best lots of Kenya it buys at auction every year as its "Grand Cru" Kenya. Visit
