Juicy but savory, deep, subtle. Mulberry, dark chocolate, black sage, narcissus in aroma and cup. Roundly and richly tart acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor thins out a bit but rings on in a resonant finish.
Produced by the Tambaya wet mill, a member of the Rumukia Farmer’s Co-op Society, from trees of the admired SL28 and SL34 varieties. This sample consists entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading. Victrola is a small-batch, hands-on roaster with a passionate commitment to quality and distinctiveness. Visit www.victrolacoffee.com or call 206-624-1725 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
A fine variation on the Kenya theme of juicy, berryish sweetness fused with the dry, savory and crisp. Aficionados of the classic Kenya style should particularly enjoy it.
