Deep and savory-sweet. Molasses-leaning dark chocolate, fig, cedar, rose-like flowers in aroma and cup. Gently tart acidity; silky mouthfeel. Rich, round, slightly drying finish.
Processed by the classic Kenya wet-processing method: fruit is removed before drying using traditional ferment-and-wash methods and the beans are sun-dried. This sample consists entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading.

Who Should Drink It
A darker roast turns the pungent Kenya fruit toward molasses and chocolate and deepens the flowers toward rose. A good Kenya for those who prefer depth to brightness.
