Blind Assessment: Deep-toned, floral and chocolaty. Dark chocolate, honeysuckle, tamarind, mulberry, fresh-cut oak in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory structure with gentle, rounded but vibrant acidity; very syrupy, viscous mouthfeel. Long, lingering, balanced, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers from trees of the Batian and Ruiru varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed method. Big Shoulders Coffee is a Chicago artisan roaster that emphasizes a fresh-roasted, no-nonsense approach to fine coffee. Visit www.bigshoulderscoffee.com or call 312-846-1439 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A smooth, deeply sweet, richly savory Kenya cup, chocolaty and floral-driven, with an especially compelling mulberry note throughout.
