Blind Assessment: Delicate, quietly sweet-toned. Roasted cacao nib, red grape, fresh-cut fir, lemon zest, gardenia-like flowers in aroma and cup. Gentle, rounded structure; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to notes of lemon zest and gardenia with a hint of fresh-cut fir.
Notes: Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. Direct Coffee, founded in 2005, is a roastery located in the scenic city of Hsinchu, Taiwan. For the past 13 years, Direct Coffee has specialized in searching for high-quality coffee beans and roasting them to display their unique and distinctive characteristics.

The Bottom Line: A pleasing, light-footed and accessible Kenya cup: crisp, citrusy, sweetly wood-framed.
