The exciting new Kenya from Giakanja Factory flourishes with floral and honey on the nose with just a hint of cocoa, succeeding into the cup with a bright clean citrus, green apple acidity and creamy mouthfeel. Flavors of ruby red grapefruit, green apples, and hints of cherry fruit loom, creating a sweet finish and lingering aftertaste that leaves a smile on your face.

Ken Davids from CoffeeReview.com assessed this Kenya as a "strikingly distinctive profile: lavender-like flowers, crisp baker’s chocolate, strawberry-like fruit, richly pungent cedar. Crisply balanced acidity; silky, buoyantly lively mouthfeel. Rich, lavender-toned chocolate in the finish." Rating Giakanja 94 points. A balanced and complete medium-roasted cup, yet remarkable in its aromatic details. A Kenya you must try.
