Complex, nuanced, multi-layered. Black currant, freesia-like flowers, honey, Nutella, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with juicy, high-toned acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. The resonant finish leads with currant and freesia notes in the short, rounding to Nutella and cedar in the long.
This coffee tied for the second-highest rating in a cupping of coffees from Kenya for Coffee Review’s October 2020 report. Produced from trees of the admired SL-28 and SL-34 varieties of Arabica by smallholding farmers and processed at the Ritho FCS Handege Factory (wet mill). Evie’s Café, based in Chia-Yi Taiwan, specializes in fine roasted coffees as well as serving distinctive pour-overs and cold-brews. Visit https://m.facebook.com/eviescafe88/ for more information.
A classic Kenya cup saturated with distinct black currant notes, supported by spice-toned florals and chocolate-nut undertones.
