Crisply pungent, complex in structure and aromatics. Fine balance of sweet, tartly dry and savory: dark chocolate, brown sugar, black currant, blackberry, a hint of white sage in aroma and cup. Brisk but juicy acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Balanced, gently rich short finish with some chocolate and molasses notes surviving in the long.
Despite grower discontent, confusing government coffee policy and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, the famed Kenya coffee auction system and its participating cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. Mystic Monk Coffee is a small-batch roaster associated with a Carmelite monastery located in the Rocky Mountains of northern Wyoming. The monks emphasize an artisan approach to roasting and a commitment to quality. Visit www.mysticmonkcoffee.com or call 877-751-6377 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
A fine variation on the sweet and berryish yet crisply dry-boned Kenya profile.
