Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet, meadowy. Molasses, lilac, wheat grass, fresh cucumber, fresh-cut elm in aroma and cup. Delicately sweet-savory in structure; lightly syrupy in mouthfeel. Fresh, sweet, rather simple finish.
Notes: SL34 is a tree variety famously associated with the fine coffees of Kenya. This version was grown in Kona and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Kraig and Leslie Lee have been growing and harvesting traditional Kona Coffee for over 25 years. In 2017 they introduced several distinguished new tree varieties to their 4.7 acre farm, including this one, which they are offering for the first time.

The Bottom Line : A fresh, sweet-toned cup: morning in a meadow.
