Rich and Tasty

Like the Kenya's coffee I have gotten so far. Too bad this is limited release. Great as an Espresso. The Toffee flavours balance out the berry flavours

Vibrant Kenyan Coffee

Complex and vibrant taste followed by sweet caramel tones, well balanced and very pleasant to drink especially when tried with milk. It is on of the best coffees and one of my favourites.
