Kenya Kiangombe Cooperative

From the Kabare Farmers Society. The beans from the Kiangombe mill are often some of my favorites, and this lot is bursting with flavor. Once you are done savoring the aroma, there are delicious notes of lime, blackberry, peach, a citric acidity, and the classic winey currant full-bodied flavor that good Kenya is known for. The large defect-free AB beans are the SL-28 and SL-34 varietals that the good Kenyas always are.

We picked it out while in Kenya and bought it before anyone else had a chance to know about it! It scored 90+ and was one of the best coffees we tasted out of 1000+ lots.

Roast it about 25 seconds past the end of the 1st cracks. Bright and fruity, I like it in a french press which smooths down some of the acidity and pulls out the most complexity.
