The Kenya Karatu was carefully roasted for you by Kuma Coffee. Grown by the Gitwe Society in the Thika region at 1,900 meters, this fully washed coffee is a perfect example of why we love coffees from Kenya. The cup is bursting with an acidity that pops with notes of citrus fruits like grapefruit and blood orange, tropical fruit and a winey characteristic.
This was is in the top 3 coffee's I have ever tasted. Absolutely delicious. The tasting notes are pretty spot on. Although, there a sweetness that balances the acidity really nicely. Most Kenyans I have tasted shared many characteristics, this one did not fit in that box.
Fruity and acid but it didn't have the zing, exotic aromas and complexity that the two Guatamalan coffees had.
This coffee is like candy! The citrus fruits are so evident in every sip, and when I made it iced in my chemex, it was even better. I love how aggressively light the coffee is roasted and how complex it's turned out.
