Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Richly aromatic, deeply sweet-savory, floral-toned. Hop flowers, lilac, butterscotch, almond brittle, date in aroma and small cup. Syrupy-smooth mouthfeel; resonant, lasting finish redolent of both sweet and savory florals and deep nut-butter tones.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers in the Nakuru region of Kenya and processed at the Gachombe washing station or mill. Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A complex, savory-sweet, rich-toned single-origin Kenya espresso with layers of sweet, tart and savory impulses, all harmoniously integrated.
