Blind Assessment: High-toned, crisply sweet. Mango, halvah, fine musk, freesia, dark chocolate in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with bright, juicy acidity; plump, velvety mouthfeel. The lingering, resonant finish carries through on the vivacious, complex promise of the cup.
Notes: Produced from trees of the admired SL-28 and SL-34 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 and bright, layered with fruit and floral intrigue.
