What I look for in a great Kenya Coffee

When I buy or taste Kenya coffee I usually want two main things. Bold blackcurrants (or at least clean fruity notes) and also sweetness.  How would it be if you had fruit juice, that wasn’t sweet? Would it be a vegetable juice? no, because of course, they can be sweet too. When a  fruit isn’t sweet it is usually sour or bitter and something is peculiar. So simplicity and clarity are easy routes to Kenya coffee happiness for me. As the first of our Kenya’s is finishing, this is our third and final lot for the season, which will be with us for some time I hope.
