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.
Notes: 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.
