Deep, sweet cherry, almost dessert-wine-like character in the aroma. Tangy, bright acidity, leanish though smooth mouthfeel. Big, sweet, concentrated fruit flavor that combines suggestions of black currant, tart cherry and lemon. Flavors persist in a rich finish.
Despite grower discontent and sporadic social disorder, Kenya cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. 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. Roasted at PT’s Coffee, where the motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit
