Blind Assessment: Cocoa-toned, richly floral. Honeysuckle, cocoa nib, red currant, cedar, pink grapefruit zest in aroma and cup. Brightly sweet-tart structure with balanced acidity; smooth, lightly creamy mouthfeel. Finish is resonant, redolent with red currant, cocoa nib and cedar notes.
Notes: Despite challenges ranging from contested government coffee policy and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands to chronically unstable weather, Kenya continues to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. Located in southwestern Colorado, Durango Coffee lays claim to a rich coffee history that dates to 1986. Its motto is “Tough Town, Great Coffee.” Visit www.durangocoffee.com or call 800-748-2275 for more information.
The Bottom Line: Cocoa-driven, floral-framed, with rich cedar and dark red fruit notes throughout; a classic Kenya cup.
