Kenya Karani

Kenya Karani

From the Kabare Farmers Society in the Kirinyaga region. This one tastes a little different from other Kenyas because it has a lemon cake / lemonade prominent note to it, but then it also has flashes of honey and grapefruit with a puckery mouthfeel and it ends on a sweet cocoa note. It sounds pretty bad, but it ended up really standing out and being one of our favorites. 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. I like it in a french press which smooths down some of the acidity and pulls out the most complexity.
