    This was a pretty interesting coffee, figgy, a bit lactic, a ton of different berry and citrus notes, plus both chocolate and black tea. V really liked it, which I thought was interesting because Kenyan is normally more my thing than hers. But I think this does drink a bit more like a Colombian in a lot of ways. I would not have guessed a washed Kenyan, that's for sure. But very enjoyable!

More Details

Roast Level: Light Medium
A Light Medium Roast coffee, sometimes referred to as a "City Roast" or "American Roast," lies between a light and medium roast. This roast level strikes a balance by preserving the coffee bean's unique characteristics while allowing for a moderate development of body and flavor. The beans have a medium brown color, exhibiting a slight sheen of oils, providing a more balanced and nuanced flavor profile. A Light Medium Roast typically highlights the coffee's inherent fruity, floral, or citrus notes, while also providing some of the deeper, richer flavors associated with medium roasts.
Bean Source Country: Kenya
Famed for its bold, bright acidity and fruity, wine-like flavors, Kenyan coffee often features blackcurrant, citrus, and tropical fruit notes. The high elevations, volcanic soil, and meticulous processing techniques contribute to the consistent, high-quality beans, with SL28 and SL34 among the most esteemed varieties.
Bean Source Region: Kirinyaga
Kirinyaga is a renowned coffee-growing region in central Kenya, recognized for its exceptional coffee production. Coffee from Kirinyaga is characterized by its bright acidity, pronounced sweetness, and distinctively floral and fruity flavors. It often exhibits notes of blackcurrant, apricot, black tea, and a velvety body.
