Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet and spicy. Blackberry, sandalwood, ripe tomato and cocoa in aroma and cup. Juicy, balanced acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor saturates the sweet, long, resonant finish.
Notes: Despite challenges ranging from unclear government coffee policy and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands to chronically unstable weather, the famed Kenya coffee auction system and its participating cooperatives continue to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. With two locations in Southern California’s Orange County, Kéan Coffee is an in-house coffee roaster and retailer established by Martin Diedrich of the distinguished Diedrich coffee family. The Kéan slogan, “Martin knows his beans,” should be true, considering Martin grew up in Guatemala where his family owned a coffee farm.Visit www.keancoffee.com or call 949-933-9164 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a classic Kenya cup with pleasingly balanced chocolate and fruit notes.
