Blind Assessment:

Vibrant, high-toned, deeply sweet. Candied violet, pomegranate, sandalwood, honey, almond in aroma and cup. Richly sweet structure with bright, citrusy acidity; satiny mouthfeel. Sweetly tart in the short finish and redolent of honey and pomegranate in the long.

Notes:

This coffee tied for the third-highest rating in a cupping of coffees from U.S. Mountain States roasters for Coffee Review’s October 2018 tasting report. 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. Founded by Andy Sprenger in 2013, Sweet Bloom develops long-term relationships with coffee producers that emphasize transparency and consistency. Visit www.sweetbloomcoffee.com for more information.

The Bottom Line: A deep, nuanced Kenya cup with notes of tart fruit, sweet florals, and rich aromatic wood.
