Blind Assessment: Very sweet, very tart, intense. Red currant, honey, blood orange, cumin, narcissus-like flowers in aroma and cup. Richly bright acidity; syrupy but lively mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates and acidity rounds in a resonant finish.
Notes: Produced from trees of the admired heirloom SL28 and SL34 varieties of Arabica, as well as the hybrid Ruiru 11. Grown by members of the Ruthaka Cooperative, a group consisting of 3,600 farmers and seven wet mills. Despite grower discontent and sporadic social disorder, Kenya continues to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. Established in 2010, Red Rooster is an organic-certified micro-roaster focusing on socially conscious coffee and high quality coffee.

Who Should Drink It: A brilliant, challenging coffee, juicy and bright, thrilling to those who can handle the sweetly pungent, cleanly fruit-toned intensity.
