Blind Assessment: In the aroma orangy citrus, molasses, nut, black currant. In the cup richly tart acidity, lightly syrupy body, and shifting, complex flavor: pungent aromatic wood, black currant, blackberry, ripe citrus, molasses. All saturate the long, resonant finish with an exquisite dematerialized essence of flavor.
Notes: This coffee is Fair-Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Despite recent social and political disorder and a partial and rather confusing transition from auction system to open market, Kenya cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles, including this blend.

Who Should Drink It: A superb, complex Fair Trade Certified Kenya.
