Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet-savory, richly aromatic. Red currant jam, honeysuckle, sandalwood, brown sugar, marjoram in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with savory underpinnings; vivacious, juicy acidity. The finish centers on notes of red currant and sandalwood.
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. Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line : A classic Kenya cup: bright and juicy with leading notes of dark berry and sweet florals; especially high-toned, lively acidity.
