From the Nyambine Hills in the Meru region. This one tastes a little different from other Kenyas because it has a lemon cake / lemonade note, but then it also has flashes of honey and grapefruit with a puckery mouthfeel and it ends on a sweet cocoa note. The large defect-free AA beans are the SL-28 and SL-34 varietals that the good Kenyas always are.
Roast it about 25 seconds past the end of the 1st cracks. You can draw out the middle of the roast more than with most Kenyas to make it a little creamier. It doesn't have much acidity, and it's more creamy/smooth than you would expect from Kenya. I personally like it brewed with a Hario V60 pourover where the aroma and nuances really shine.
