Blind Assessment: Delicate, sweetly spice-toned. Red currant, lemon verbena, baker’s chocolate, rose hips, a hint of cannabis in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet-savory structure; crisp, velvety mouthfeel. The finish is sweetly herb-toned, leading with notes of lemon verbena and red currant in the short and a sweet muskiness akin to cannabis in the long, with a throughline of baker’s chocolate.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers from trees of the Ruiru 11, Batian, SL28 and SL34 varieties of Arabica. Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. Espresso Republic, founded in 2010, specializes in sourcing quality coffees and roasting them in small batches for both retail and wholesale customers.

The Bottom Line: A delicate, spice-driven Kenya cup with engaging undercurrents of fruit, floral and chocolate.
