Blind Assessment: Juicy, bright, deeply sweet-savory. Candied violet, black cherry, honey, almond butter, cedar in aroma and cup. Richly sweet structure with bright, phosphoric acidity; satiny-full mouthfeel. Juicy in the short finish with notes of honey and black cherry in the long.
Notes: Despite challenges ranging from contested government coffee policy and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands to chronically unstable weather, Kenya continues to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. What began as a bike-powered mobile coffee shop born out of founder Chris O’Brien’s love of cycling now has a permanent home in San Diego, where he roasts and serves coffee to guests.

The Bottom Line: A deep-toned, multi-layered Kenya cup with notes of tart fruit, rich nut tones, and sweet florals throughout.
