Blind Assessment: Sweetly spice-toned, floral. Wisteria, dark chocolate, black currant, marjoram, pink grapefruit zest in aroma and cup. Sweetly rich, tart structure with vibrant acidity; full, satiny-smooth mouthfeel. Notes of star wisteria and black currant carry the sweet, deep-toned finish.
Notes: Despite grower discontent, unclear government coffee policy and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, the famed Kenya coffee auction system and its participating cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A classic Nyeri cup: floral- and fruit-driven, chocolaty, richly aromatic and punctuated with sweet herb undertones.
