kenya mandela estate

340 g / 12 oz

Elevation: 6000 ft

Tasting Notes: Citrus, Cinnamon, Dried Fruit

The small coffee estate Mandela lies within the Kiambu District, near the Gatamaiyo Forest Reserve.  This wet-process, sun-dried bean is an SL-28 cultivar, and Kenyans don't part with these varietals easily.  The dry fragrance of Mandela is similar snickerdoodle cookies ­— sweet, cinnamon spices that come through in light to medium roasts.  The cup at medium has a citrus overlay that's bracing, and drives a stark vibrance through flavor notes of raw sugars and nectarine.  Even darker roasts offer some level of citric shimmer to structure flavor notes. Speaking of which, an espresso shot showed a syrupy chocolate side, infused with a slightly bittering orange.
