Kenya Nyeri Kagumo-ini AB

The cup is sweet and juicy. City+ roasts bring out the fruited complexity that this coffee is capable of producing. Red apple, ripe pink grapefruit, green grape, and candied orange peel, names only a few of the fruit notes we found. Going darker into the roast sees a caramelized sugar note along with golden raisin. This coffee fades to a slightly rindy finish as it cools, which is pleasantly bittering. City+ to Full City.

We're pleased to offer another beautiful lot from the Mugaga Farmer's Cooperative Society - this AB lot from Kagumo-ini. The quality of coffee coming out of this mill is consistently high, and a good reason we continue to offer lots from here year after year. We've already listed an amazing peaberry lot from the Kagumo-ini "factory" and this particular AB version carries the same pedigree as its "PB" couterpart. The mill is near Karatina town in Mathira, Nyeri with average farms in the area at 1600 meter altitude. It's a typical cooperative in many ways, but there's nothing typical about the quality of the coffee produced here. For instance, farmers sort their coffee themselves prior to submitting for processing, making certain as much defective cherry is removed as possible. It's small things like this make a huge difference in the resulting coffee. This is our second shipment of Kagumo-ini for the year, but has been very consistent with the high quality of the first lot we sold, as is a fresher late 2012 arrival.
The dry fragrance of Kagumo-ini is laced with caramel and vanilla sweetness. Full City roasts have sweet spices, hints cardamom and all-spice. There is also a floral peach scent in the dry aroma that comes through clearly when hot water is added. Breaking the wet grounds of a City+ roast has a malic brightness, with hints of citrus, ripe apricot, and clover honey, while darker roasts have more of a caramel apple appeal.

This is a coffee that really opens up as it cools, and the longer you hold it on your palate, the more you get out of it. Lighter roasts start to display tropical fruit flavors of guava as the cup cools Out of all our Kenya coffees, this is definitely the one with the best SO espresso potential due to the culmination of dark sugar sweetness, moderate brightness, and sweet fruit notes.
