Blind Assessment: Sweetly roast-rounded, cocoa-toned. Baker's chocolate, black currant, rose hip, singed cedar, almond brittle in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet-tart structure; delicate, syrupy mouthfeel. The richly drying finish centers around tart floral notes and baker's chocolate.
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. Green Stone Coffee is a woman-owned artisan roastery in Taipei, founded in 2016 and specializing in sourcing distinctive coffees that express their individual terroirs.

The Bottom Line: A rich, discreetly roast-toned Kenya cup, with notes of black currant and chocolate as throughlines.
