Blind Assessment:

Bright, richly sweet-savory. Red currant, hop flowers, fresh-cut cedar, roasted cacao nib, almond brittle in aroma and cup. Richly bittersweet structure with resonant, high-toned acidity; viscous, satiny mouthfeel. The lingering finish leads with red currant and almond brittle in the short, settling to cacao nib and hop flowers in the long.


Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya and its dedicated cooperatives continue to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A harmonious Kenya that gracefully integrates sweet and savory, bright and bitter, in vibrant balance.
