    I actually got only a minute sample of this because my tasting partner drank all of it!! As far I could tell, it is one of the best Kenyan coffees I've ever had.

    The front of the palate is bursting with berry flavors, and then there is an interesting herbal note, almost mint chamomile. Intense natural sweetness, complex acidity, and mouthfeel. Sensational.

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.
