    Pretty tasty. Juicy, cranberry, a touch savory, pretty full bodied with a long fruity/cranberry finish. Will be on the acidic side for some.

    Cupping Method:Pourover. I got this roast as part of the JBC Fall Sampler (this was bag #7)

    I loved the tart, grapefruit kick in this cup. This aroma was out of this world, such a pleasant experience.

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.
Bean Source Region: Nyeri
Specialty coffee from Nyeri, a region in the central highlands of Kenya, is highly prized for its bright acidity, complex flavor profile, and rich body. The coffee is often grown at 1,500 to 2,100 meters above sea level, benefiting from volcanic soil and a climate marked by adequate rainfall and moderate temperatures. These factors contribute to the development of coffee cherries rich in sugars and acids, creating a cup that often exhibits notes of blackcurrant, citrus, and tropical fruit, layered with subtle floral and tea-like undertones.
