Blind Assessment: Deeply rich, with an enveloping pungency. Blackcurrant, musky rose, walnut and oak in aroma and cup. Low-toned but rich acidity; buoyant, syrupy mouthfeel. Walnut saturates the short finish; blackcurrant the long.
Notes: The Karogoto wet mill processes coffee from the South Kirimukuyu Farmers’ Cooperative Society, which includes about 800 members, all smallholders averaging only 250 coffee trees per farm. Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. Papa Lin’s Coffee Roasting is a “nano” roaster located in Yorktown Heights, New York, that focuses on carefully sourced, extremely high-quality specialty coffees that are custom-roasted to the preference of every customer.
