Blind Assessment: Nectar-like sweetness with distinct floral and apricot notes; hints of cocoa and pungent fir. Delicate, lucid acidity; light but very silky mouthfeel. Simplifies just a bit in a sweet but drying finish.
Notes: This coffee was produced exclusively from trees of Kenya’s premier varieties of Arabica, the great, Bourbon-related SL28 and SL34. Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees.

Who Should Drink It: Refined floral and deep fruit sweetness makes this an original and engaging variation on the great Kenya cup.
