Kenya – Marua AA
|Roaster Location:||Northborough, Massachusetts|
|Review Date:||March 1999|
A high score but a relatively low wow quotient. Apparently panelists valued this coffee for its rich balance and deeply matrixed fruit; the body was described variously as full, heavy, and thick. However, several panelists felt the cup was a bit faded, restrained, "past-croppish." Perhaps this is an instance when the mid-season timing of the cupping did prejudice the cupping results.
This big, full-bodied coffee displays a rich balance and deeply matrixed fruit. Awarded the second highest score ever by the Coffee Review Cupping Board. This coffee was reviewed as a green coffee, and is offered by this roaster. This Kenya AA sample is from an auction lot from a single cooperatively owned Kenya mill. This coffee was reviewed as green coffee, and is offered by this roaster.
