“There is an orange marmalade sweetness, accented with clean mango fruit notes on the lighter roasts. The body is syrupy which pairs well with the caramel-butterscotch sweetness. In the finish, the sweet candied fruit flavors turn toward an aggressive, half-herbal and half-foresty character. It’s a classic Kenya twist of the tongue. Some in the trade describe it unfavorably as “sweaty” and some quite favorably call it … “sweaty”! It adds interest and complexity to the cup, and I find it rindy, and makes for a long fading aftertaste. As the cup cools, the fruits seem more winey, and tropical makes way for a black currant and pomegranate-laced syrup. I enjoy this lot so much because it’s not just a simple sweet-fruited dessert coffee.”

More new coffees very soon. Also, like I said earlier, Check out the Guatemala Finca El Tambor as an SO espresso! Krazy güt!
