The Kenya Othaya AA was carefully roasted for you by Entimos Coffee Roasters. This fully washed coffee was sourced from the growing region of Nyeri in Kenya and was grown by the Othaya Farmers Cooperative Society at 1,900 meters. The cup is bright and complex, with notes of dark fruits and chocolate.
Beans have nice smell. Smell during brewing (v60) is not pleasant. I had to increase my usual grind size to cut the burnt bitterness down. I don't really notice any fruity tasting notes; chocolate, maybe. It seems a little over-roasted.
This has been my favorite coffee that I've had so far. It makes a beautiful cup of coffee or espresso with milk or by itself. The aroma is intoxicating and the chocolate notes are nice and dark, but what I love most are the floral notes that I was not expecting to be there. The base is rich and flavorful and the finish is just bright enough to round it off. This one is a no-brainer for me: top tier.
Excellent coffee with a few more earthy notes for our taste but still an excellent coffee for pour over. Thank You Misto Box
It has a good flavor, but there isn't anything distintive. It's smooth, but kind of bland. Overall a good coffee, but nothing stands out.
Bold cup, good for the morning. Slightly astringent with a strong burnt flavor. Complexity in the initial taste, with a lingering bitter aftertaste
Fantastic flavor in V60!
I loved this one. The flavors were quite rich and tasted very fresh.
Charcoal scent to it right after finishing the pour over. Opened up to get much more of a cinnamon smell. Taste opens up as you go as well--dark chocolate with a bright but not overbearing acidity to it. A solid cup. The wife wasn't a big fan; much preferred the Equator. I agree the Equator was better overall flavor, but enjoyed this one.
Its a great cup of coffee that you can tell is freshly roasted, smells great, tastes great, but there is nothing that specifically stands out in this cup of coffee. Great if you want a smooth cup of good coffee.
Great balanced coffee without being boring
Lots of berry/dark fruit when black. Dark chocolate/brownie with milk. Very rich.
I enjoyed this one a lot. it had nice chocolatey notes with just a touch of fruit flavor
