How it tastes? Lively mandarin orange and Meyer lemon citrus notes beautifully balance fresh berry and grape flavors.

The cup is balanced and full-bodied.  A touch of brown sugar rounds up this empowering coffee.

The aroma is intense and the taste pleasing. The brew is crisp yet smooth and wonderful acidic.
Recommended Roast: Medium - Dark Medium roast develops aromas of fresh blackcurrant, a twist of tangerine and layers of caramel.

Dark roast develops a delicious blackberry jam base interwoven with dark chocolate and toffee notes.

This high elevation, AA bean (16/17) takes heat well and produces a vibrant and bold cup.

This unique estate is infamous for solely farming the most-prized and complex SL 28 and SL 34 Bourbon varieties, a rare opportunity in Kenya where there is a growing use of hybrids.
