Blind Assessment:

Very sweetly tart, floral-prominent and rich-toned. Lemon custard, red currant jam, tea rose, maple syrup and dried coconut in aroma and cup. Delightfully crisp and tart, though cohesively resonant in structure; very lightly though buoyantly syrupy in mouthfeel. The finish is pert and satisfying, with a lingering sweet crispness and a long aromatic trajectory.


Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues 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: Though delicate and perhaps a bit bright for some palates, the integrated breadth of “tart” is reminiscent of fine desserts by the same name. An elegant example of the Kenya type.
