Kenya Kabare AA
|Roaster Location:||Billings, Montana|
|Coffee Origin:||South-central Kenya|
|Est. Price:||$17.50/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||October 2018|
Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet, spice-toned. Red currant, tangerine zest, roasted cacao nib, honey, narcissus-like flowers in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with lively, bright acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. The long, flavor-saturated finish consolidates to cocoa nib and tangerine zest, with lingering notes of narcissus.
Notes: Produced by the Kabare Cooperative from trees of the admired SL28 and SL34 varieties of Arabica. Despite challenges ranging from unclear government coffee policy and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands to chronically unstable weather, the famed Kenya coffee auction system and its participating cooperatives continue to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. AA is the highest grade of Kenya coffee based on bean size and freedom from physical imperfections. Revel Coffee is a micro-roaster located in Billings, Montana. Its motto: “Quality is paramount—a difference you can revel in.” Visit www.revelcoffee.com or call 406-534-9621 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A spice-driven, floral-toned Kenya cup with balanced, bright acidity.
