Blind Assessment:

Richly sweet, spice-toned. Roasted cacao nib, tamarind, tangerine zest, freesia-like flowers, almond in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with juicy acidity; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. Resonant finish centers on notes of cocoa-toned tamarind and freesia.


Produced by the Rungeto Farmer’s Co-operative Society from trees of the admired SL28 and SL34 varieties of Arabica. 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.

The Bottom Line: A balanced and engaging Kenya: high-toned with spicy floral and delicate cocoa notes.
