    The coffee is from the Kimoso estate in the west of the country - the Trans-Nzoia region - near the Ugandan border. Not a region typically well known for producing specialty coffee but this is certainly that.

    Theres apple and brown sugar on the dry aroma with a little blackcurrant at the break. The flavour is very good with malic red fruits; cranberry, raspberry. The acidity is complex with citric blackcurrant and cherry tomato - theres just about enough sweetness to balance this too.

    I was lucky enough to taste a 90+ Kenyan Ribena bomb in a blind cupping a few weeks ago and were not up there in terms of juicy sweet blackcurrants and lime for days with this, but it is structured, poised, bright flavourful and clean.

    You can read plenty about this coffee (and others) and the really positive relationship North Star have with the farms and suppliers they work with on their website.

    North Star exist in part to prove there is a kinder way of doing business.

    Ill drink to that.
