    This was an outstanding Kenya that I had as pourover at Turtle Beans in Bordentown. It was so good that I ordered it to go but had almost finished it before I went. This I am almost certain (I'd have to go back through the notes) was my favorite Kenyan of the year (there was another from a Danish roaster that was also outstanding).

    The highlight of this roast is the immense tropicality that almost resembles a Central American gesha. Kiwi, pineapple, passionfruit were notes I got, along with black tea. There was no savoriness that sometimes offsets Kenyan coffee's winning characteristics. This was a great roast.

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.
