Crisply sweet, elegantly tart. Blackcurrant, baker’s chocolate, lemon verbena, lavender in aroma and cup. Round, richly tart acidity; lightly plush mouthfeel. Blackcurrant and lemon verbena carry into a resonant 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.

Classic Kenya; sweet but seriously dry, berry-toned, elegant.
