Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Rich-toned, deeply sweet-savory. Black currant, dark chocolate, cedar, tamarind, freesia in aroma and small cup. Lively, syrupy mouthfeel; the resonant finish centers around tamarind, dark chocolate and cedar. Balanced and flavor-saturated in three parts milk; dark chocolate and freesia notes particularly amplified.
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. 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 classic Kenya espresso: juicy, deep, driven by florals, fruit and chocolate. Invitingly intense in cappuccino-scaled milk.
