This Kenya is a unique and wonderful offering, this espresso is juicy and bright with a mellow body. It kicks of with a pleasant brown butter richness that leads right into a sweet tropical fruit brightness. The espresso is a liquid pineapple upside down cake! The linger coats and rests on your tongue for a few seconds, while you contemplate how many shots you'll end up having!

Recommended: Make yourself an oatmilk cortado (equal parts espresso to milk) to truly make your childhood dreams of drinkable cakes a reality!


Description: This coffee hails from the Nyeri region of Kenya, and is produced within the Giakanja Coffee Farmers Society, where they are known for paying their members the best premiums in all of Nyeri County. This may very well be one of our favorite Kenyan coffees that we've tasted! This cup is complex, juicy, well balanced, and smooth. On the front end you will pick up on sweet notes of juicy, baked peaches, toasted marzipan, and a hint of brown sugar. The medium body is accompanied by a pillowy, creamy mouthfeel, alongside subtle notes of tropical fruit like dried pineapple and mango. This cup finishes smooth and floral, with notes of wild violets and a lingering note of peach sweetness.
