Thiriku Cooperative Kenya AA Nyeri
|Roaster Location:||Acton, Massachusetts|
|Coffee Origin:||Nyeri growing region, south-cental Kenya|
|Review Date:||August 2004|
Bright but sweet, lyrically and complexly high-toned. Lemon, cherry, black currant in the aroma. In the cup cherry, tart berries, sweet grapefruit, even a rounding hint of milk chocolate.
Kenya is one of the world's most admired coffee origins. Terroir is a recently established microroaster selling only elite single-origin coffees, no blends. It stores its green coffees frozen in nitrogen-flushed containers (this Kenya is from the 2001 crop) and specializes in medium roast styles designed to foreground the character of the green coffee. Terroir is the creation of George Howell, one of the world's leading coffee visionaries and authorities. Visit www.terroircoffee.com or call 866-444-5282 for more information.
