Kenya Nguvu AA
What, a coffee from Kenya during the summer time? No way. This is what? The fourth year in a row? As everyone knows I usually preface this with the fact I'm a sucker for a solid coffee from Kenya at all times. There's just something about that citric tastes that bring back all the feels. See: Florida as to blame. But anyways personal anecdotes aside this is a solid Kenyan with the usual bright, citric and a robust mouthfeel. I rarely ascribe light roasts to pep in my step, and I don't go hardcore on the "extra caffiene" angle ever, however I think it's just the general largeness of the coffee that makes me go that extra step. There's just something so filling about these coffee's again personal anecdote.
If you're looking for where this places in the rankings of all the coffee's we've brought in I'd put this right besides the Muchagara. The bell curve for Kenya has some crazy high end notes (the ichamama peaberry last year) that are diamonds in the rough and then there's a slightly more available sweet high end but missing those top notes in the middle part that rocks. This is one.
