Subtle aromatic notes of sweet citrus fruits and perfume-like blossoms. In the cup, a sweetly-tart citrusy acidity, medium body, and a silky mouthfeel. The flavor balances a floral character with tart lemony citrus and a hint of nut. The finish is delicate and clean with the slightest suggestion of the primary flavor components.
Despite national coffee leadership marked by confusion and recent social disorder, Kenya cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. This sample consists entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading. Paradise Roasters prides itself on roasting and shipping coffee only after orders are placed. Its metaphoric mission is to bring some paradisiacal warmth from the coffee-growing south to the cool environs of Minnesota. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
