Blind Assessment: Sweetly savory, rich and deep. Dark chocolate, violet, black cherry, molasses, cedar in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet with juicy acidity; very syrupy mouthfeel. Black cherry and violet, with undertones of cedar, resonate in the finish.
Notes: Despite grower discontent, unclear 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. Evie’s Café, based in Chia-Yi Taiwan, specializes in fine roasted coffees as well as pour-overs and cold brews. Visit https://m.facebook.com/eviescafe88/ for more information.
The Bottom Line: A surprisingly lush Kenya cup with leading notes of dark stone fruit and a rich chocolate throughline.
