Blind Assessment: Pungent, deep, complex. Honey, raspberry, roasted cacao nib, fresh-cut pine in aroma and cup. Delicate, sweetly balanced acidity; silky mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but lasts in a very sweet-toned, slightly drying finish.
Notes: Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. Big Shoulders Coffee is a Chicago artisan roaster that emphasizes its fresh-roasted, no-nonsense approach to fine coffee. Visit www.bigshoulderscoffee.com or call 312-888-3042 for more information.
