Blind Assessment: Richly sweet, spice-toned. Black currant, blood orange zest, roasted cacao nib, freesia-like flowers, sugar cane in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart in structure with juicy, bright acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The crisp, resonant finish consolidates to cocoa-toned black currant and freesia.
Notes: Produced by members of the Kabare Farmer's Cooperative Society from trees of the SL28, SL34 and Ruiru 11 varieties of Arabica. Despite grower discontent, contested government coffee policy and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, the famed Kenya coffee auction system and its participating cooperatives continue to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees.

The Bottom Line : A classic Kenya cup, juicy-sweet, with leading notes of black currant backed up by cocoa and spicy florals.
