    Blind tasting.

    Nice aroma, clean caramel, and black tea platform, slightly funky, a nice citrus tartness with medium brightness. I had plum in my first tasting notes, but not subsequent (B&W listed red plum!) Really nice, smooth mouthfeel and a hint of tropicality.

    Cupping Method:Part of Leaderboard Season 13. Drank it a couple times. I liked this coffee but couldn't really nail down the origin. I didn't really get any of the traditional Kenyan notes and thought it was a natural processed Colombian. The picture is of my last Hario v60 attempt at 17:1, 197F to draw out some of the distinguishing notes.

    This roast presented to me as an excellent medium roast, although I believe it is actually a light roast. Strong coffee flavor that features a sweet toasted oat with a bit of cocoa. Well-balanced and creamy mouthfeel.

    Cupping Method:Moka espresso, cream with no sweetener

More Details

Roast Level: Light
Light roast coffee is a delicately roasted coffee that retains more of the beans' natural flavors and characteristics. Light-roasted coffees have bright acidity, complex fruit, and floral notes. Light roast coffee does not have less caffeine than darker roasts because caffeine levels remain stable during roasting.
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.
