Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Rich-toned, floral. Dark chocolate, black cherry, gently scorched cedar, molasses, magnolia-like flowers in aroma and small cup. Full, satiny mouthfeel; the crisp finish centers on notes of molasses and scorched cedar. Especially chocolaty in three parts milk, with pretty floral tones and undercurrents of smoky cedar.
Notes: Koffee Kool 001 (KK001) is the first proprietary blend recipe developed and owned by KFC China. The blend brings together seven different grades of washed and natural Arabica coffees from five different origins. It is offered freshly ground and brewed as espresso, Americano and other espresso- based drinks at all KFC locations. KFC is the leading quick service restaurant brand in China in terms of number of restaurants, having grown to over 6,700 locations in over 1,300 cities across China.
The Bottom Line: A deftly darker-roasted coffee characterized by notes of dark chocolate and sweet florals balanced by sweetly smoky cedar tones.
