49th Parallel Roasters
Kenya Thangathi AA
|Roaster Location:||Burnaby, British Colombia, Canada|
|Coffee Origin:||South-central Kenya.|
|Review Date:||August 2008|
Soft, balanced, sweet-toned aroma: flowers, cedar, chocolate. In the cup crisply dry with a gentle underlying sweetness: night flowers, black currant, cocoa. The cocoa note in particular carries from cup to long, quietly resonant finish.
Despite national coffee leadership marked by confusion and recent social disorder, Kenya cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. 49th Parallel is a distinguished small-batch roasting company located in the Vancouver, Canada area that specializes in high-end single-origin and blended coffees, many sourced directly from origin.
