Blind Assessment: Richly sweet, deeply savory. Wisteria, red currant, lime zest, tamarind, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Balanced structure with lively acidity; plush, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. The bright finish leads with wisteria and red currant in the short; lime grapefruit zest and sandalwood carry the long.
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. Available at any States Coffee café location in the San Francisco East Bay area. States Coffee, established in 2015, is a small-batch roastery and bakery that offers coffee, bread and baked goods.

The Bottom Line: A classic Kenya with deep fruit and florals, supported by a juicy sweet-savory structure.
