Blind Assessment: Cocoa-toned, deeply and richly sweet. Cocoa nib, lemon blossom, black currant, hazelnut butter, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with bright, vibrant acidity; creamy-full mouthfeel. Finish consolidates to notes of cocoa and black currant.
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. Imported for the Taiwan market by Pebble Coffee. 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 crisp, sweet-toned, cocoa-laden Kenya cup elevated by citrusy floral notes.
