Bright, pungent, complex. Fresh-cut fir, tartly sweet berry – strawberry, blackberry, cranberry – ripe orange and tomato in aroma and cup. Richly balanced acidity; syrupy, lively mouthfeel. Very sweet, deeply flavor-saturated finish.
Produced entirely from trees of the admired, Bourbon-derived SL28 and SL34 varieties of Arabica. The renowned Kiandu mill draws coffee from over 1,100 farmers from five different villages. Gimme! Coffee is a small-batch roaster with four espresso bars and an irreverent but passionate vision of coffee. Visit www.gimmecoffee.com or call 877-446-6325 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
A distinctive and intense yet balanced expression of the pungent/sweet fruit-toned Kenya character.
