Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet-savory. Lavender, roasted cacao nib, strawberry guava, hazelnut, toasted barley in aroma and cup. Sweetly floral structure with savory undertones; crisp, velvety mouthfeel. The cocoa-toned finish leads with spicy florals and tropical fruit in the short, grounded by pleasing notes of toasted barley in the long.
Notes: Produced from trees of the admired SL-28 and SL-34. Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line : A Kenya that covers all the bases: sweet-tart fruit, savory depth, spicy florals and cocoa.
