Blind Assessment: Balanced aromatically: notes of toast and black currant supported by pungent fir and herb. In the cup intense, penetrating flavors: deep fruit, dusk flowers, baker's chocolate, aromatic wood. The pungent hints of black currant and herb reemerge in the long, dry finish.
Notes: Despite national coffee leadership marked by confusion and recent social disorder, Kenya cooperatives like the producer of this coffee, Ritho Co-op, continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. Paradise Roasters prides itself on roasting and shipping coffee only after orders are placed. Its metaphoric mission is to bring some paradisiacal warmth from the coffee-growing south to the cool environs of Minnesota. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: A pungently intense version of the classic Kenya profile.
