Kenya Kagumo Peaberry
Prescription Coffee Lab
Peaberries are fun! This offering from Kenya offers all of the goodness that typical Kenyas have, with juicy top notes and clean finishes, but with added density in the cup. The flavors are numerous and complex, with a pleasant acidity that does not overwhelm the profile like some Kenyas can tend to do. Think tropical on the fruited profile. There is a tea like profile to the cup as well that brings out some citrus aspects of the profile. This cup is for the adventurous!
Kagumo is very near Gaaki, in Nyeri. Altitude in this region tops out at just over 1700 meters above sea level, and the landscape is graced with red volcanic loam soils, that's nutrient rich, and typical for this area.
