Gichugu Kenya Espresso

93 points (8/2012)

 

Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Rich, deep, chocolaty, with an apricot fruit and a hint of pungent cedar. Buttery mouthfeel; chocolate-toned finish. Maintains flavor well in two parts milk, though the fruit and chocolate turn surprisingly tart and dry.

Who Should Drink It: A superbly deep and balanced single-origin, straight-shot espresso, with the acidity turned from assertive to roundly rich by a skillful roast. (coffeereview.com)

Notes: Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. This sample consists entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading.
