Blind Assessment: Deeply and sweetly tart; intricate; refined. Distinct sweet lemon, pungent black currant, roasted cacao nib, narcissus-like flowers in aroma and cup. Pronounced, richly resonant acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but sustains in a crisp, gently tart finish.
Notes: This coffee took a somewhat atypical path to market for a Kenya, as it was purchased directly from the producer rather than through the Kenya auction system. Produced exclusively from trees of the admired, Bourbon-derived SL28 and SL34 varieties of Arabica. Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. Wonderstate Coffee, formerly Kickapoo Coffee, is an award-winning roaster based in rural Wisconsin known for their commitment to guaranteeing higher pay for farmers and being the country’s first 100% solar powered roastery.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a classically sweet, pungently bright, vivaciously lively Kenya.
