Bucks County Coffee
Owner’s Reserve Kenya
|Roaster Location:||Langhorne, Pennsylvania|
|Coffee Origin:||Nyeri growing district, South-central Kenya|
|Review Date:||December 2005|
Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned aroma with a tightly knit, fruit-toned complexity: chocolate, dry berry, banana perhaps. Very sweet in the cup, almost sugary in impression, complicated by a classic African tart berry character: black currant or cassis, with hints of sweet lemon and chocolate. Tartly sweet, clean finish.
Notes: From the Farran Estate, a tiny farm in the admired Nyeri growing region of Kenya. Owner's Reserve is a line of Bucks County coffees personally selected by Bucks County president Rodger Owen and sold at a premium in leading East Coast supermarkets. Bucks County Coffee has managed to stay close to its micro-roasting roots throughout its expansion from a small roasting machine in a carriage house to one of the country's largest regional specialty coffee chains.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of tartly sweet beverages and lightly sweetened, fresh fruit desserts.
