Blind Assessment:

Richly and pungently zesty. Blackberry, baker’s chocolate, mixed peppercorn, violet, lemon zest in aroma and cup. Brisk and deeply rich-toned structure with a lemon and floral inflection; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Lemon and violet with a hint of cocoa in the long, dry finish.

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 big-bodied Kenya, zesty, deep, yet delicately layered in the aromatics.
