An awesome Kenya with sparkling acidity, full body, raspberry, red wine, sweetness, dry winey finish. AA sized beans and an auction lot winner under the Nyeri umbrella which which is the closest thing to Fair Trade that Kenya has right now. It's a blend of SL28- and SL-34 which are the classic Kenyan varieties that you want. This is the late 2015 crop and just came into the US in 09/2015. I take it about 30 seconds past the end of the 1st cracks. I'd call it a City+ roast. The best way I can describe a top grade Kenya like this would be comparing it to drinking a nice red wine. Each sip is so full of complexity and flashes of flavor. You just sip at it and feel happy. This is not a grapefruit or citrus dominating taste like with most Kenyan coffees. The predominant taste is the raspberry and grape, but there is also flashes of apricot and black currant, and it jumps between sweet and tart, juicy and dry, giving your mouth a lot to appreciate as you sip at it. One of those coffees that I savor, drinking it slowly, letting it escape me into a daydream, making me happy inside and out.
