Kenya AA Gethumbwini - roasted 20.08.07
Although this blog was dedicated to my espresso runs ... I have decided to spice it up with some extra posts to keep you guys in the loop of my interesting doings :) From now on I will throw in few random coffee thoughts as well ... enjoy
soo ... my coffee of the week will have to go to Gethumbwini.
First time I had it fresh 2 days from its roast, it carries a lot of heavy blackcurrant smell and thats very much reflected in the cup, very sharp and distinct from all the other flavours. As it cooled down it picked up amazing berry-like acidity and carries through nicely, with a sweet, slightly smoky finish.
10 days past ...
The blackcurrant smell is even stronger and is just captivating! On the palate the blackcurrant really really stands out however mellows out into pleasant lingering citric aftertaste. The mouthfeel is just amazing, very creamy and rich, mmmm... the smokiness was gone and the finish was much cleaner.
This is really something special, absolutely adore this
