Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

This coffee comes out of the gate with sweet honey, roasted nutes and praline in the aroma. The body is full and pretty syrupy with a little bit of a drying edge. Flavorful all around we get white grapes, currants and plums mixed with brown sugar and dark caramels. The bittnerness is mostly in balance with tannins and toasty malt. The finish is long with a pleasant tannic bitterness.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

In the mug we find scents of juicy plum and sweet florals, leading to a light, juicy body. The flavors have the wide range and balanced complexity found in the traditional Kenya profile: subtle berry tones with candied sweetness, all brought into balance with some earthier notes of oak and nuts. The linger is a little dry, fading into the lower toned flavors of earth and oak. This coffee in three words: Earthy - Fruity - Light Body
