Big Creek Coffee Roasters
Kenya Nyeri AA
|Roaster Location:||Hamilton, Montana|
|Coffee Origin:||South-central Kenya|
|Est. Price:||$18.00/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||October 2015|
Blind Assessment: Deep, plummy, savory-sweet. Black currant, dark chocolate, narcissus, oak in aroma and cup. Roundly crisp acidity; silky, buoyant mouthfeel. Rich, cocoa-toned, slightly roasty finish.
Notes: Despite challenges ranging from unclear government coffee policy and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands to chronically unstable weather, the famed Kenya coffee auction system and its participating cooperatives continue to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. AA is the highest grade of Kenya coffee based on bean size and fewest physical imperfections. Big Creek Coffee Roasters is a small, quality-oriented batch roaster located in Montana’s Bitterroot Valley. Visit www.bigcreekcoffeeroasters.com or call 406-375-7508 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Nice Kenya for those who avoid the often bright Kenya acidity but value the pungent, savory-sweet berry and dark chocolate tendencies of the type.
