Blind Assessment:

Briskly and richly pungent. Dark chocolate, date, cherry tomato, violet, hints of herbs and spices (sage, cumin, cinnamon) in aroma and small cup. Light and silky, though gently drying mouthfeel. Crisp, quietly resonant finish. Distinctively tart, floral-toned and rich in three parts milk.

Notes:

Produced by the Kahuhia farmers’ co-operative society and processed at the Kahuhia wet mill. Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. JBC Coffee Roasters’ vision is simple: “let the coffee lead the way” through sourcing and roasting the best and most unique coffees available and rewarding the farmers who grow those coffees with substantial premiums.

The Bottom Line: A bold sweet-savory espresso with a striking and original range of aromatics.
