|Review Date:||February 2020|
|Acidity /Structure :||8|
Blind Assessment: Deep, sweet, chocolaty. Chocolate fudge, black cherry, fresh-cut fir, hibiscus blossom, brown sugar in aroma and small cup. Sweet-tart structure with crisp, apple-like acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. Gently drying finish with a chocolate throughline and fir undertones.
Notes: This coffee tied for the fourth-highest rating in a cupping of single-origin coffees available in U.S. supermarkets for Coffee Review’s February 2020 report. Purchased at a Whole Foods Market in Berkeley, California. Processed by the washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Allegro Coffee, a subsidiary of Whole Foods Market, offers one of the country’s largest selections of single-origin coffees. Visit www.allegrocoffee.com or call 800-227-1107 for more information.
The Bottom Line : A straightforward, accessible Kenya cup with big chocolate notes as a throughline.
