Kenya Embu Gikirima
Mention a coffee’s structure, and you’ll often get a baffled look, as if you’ve brought up the plot of an abstract painting. But offer a taste of a coffee like this one, which is bright and crisp, and you’ll witness a flash of understanding. Every coffee presents differently, and Kenya coffees tend to be more expressive and bright than most. This single origin, from one of Embu County’s best-known producers, progresses from first impression to last with the kind of refinement one expects from a delicate wine. Rich with tart fruit and just-picked flowers, it’s a coffee that illuminates as much as it delights.
