Deep, subtle, resonant. Concord grape, fresh-cut cedar, wisteria-like flowers, black sage, lemon zest in aroma and cup. Roundly and richly bright acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates around grape and cedar in a continued deep, ringing finish.
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. Meticulously wet-processed using traditional ferment-and-wash methods. Daktari Coffee was founded by Dr. Bob Arnot, who has been involved in East Africa for over 45 years as a physician, humanitarian and journalist and has embraced coffee as a sustainable means of development. Daktari uses sophisticated analytical chemistry to identify roast profiles aimed at retaining compounds assumed to be most health-enhancing in each coffee.

A Kenya for those who value subtle power and layered complexity.
