KENYA - Nyeri Gaturiri Peaberry - Light Roast
Gaturiri is a coffee factory near the town of Karatina in the heart of Nyeri, Kenya. Kenyan coffee producers are renown for their flavorful beans and the meticulous steps they take to ensure quality. Very juicy with an intense sweetness and a moderate fruit backing, Gaturiri is a uniquely well-balanced Kenyan coffee. The dry grounds from this bean have complex raw sugars that cast a sweet shadow on the profile, with dried red fruits, and grape. Hot water brings on confectionery-like aromatics, with a powerful sweet scent that's like opening a bag of brown sugar, with caramelized sugar accents, and a dark berry note beneath the sweetness. This Light roast has a berry-like tanginess that's tongue twisting, underscored by notes of blackberry, currant, and red grape. A mild spice note accents the aroma, along with hints of fresh plum.
