Rose-like flowers hover over a richly tart black currant note – think grapefruit fused with blackberry – in both aroma and cup. Crisp, delicately rich acidity with a hint of bite; silky mouthfeel.
Produced mainly from trees of the admired, Bourbon-derived SL28 and SL34 varieties of Arabica, this coffee was grown by the Thiriku Coffee Growers Cooperative Society. Counter Culture is a wholesale specialty roaster with an informative and lively website, a commitment to fine coffee and youthful, enthusiastic leadership. Visit
Who Should Drink It
A slightly bitterish but pleasing bite gives authority to this richly classic Kenya with its spicy floral and pungent berry notes.
