Two totally different flavor profiles are coming your way. On one had you have a nice fresh fruity and refreshing juicy Kenya. And, on the other hand, you have nutty and chocolaty Nicaragua. Some say "coffee is just coffee", or "it all tastes the same"... This comparison of these two coffees prove that wrong.
Kenya Kirinyaga Kii AB City+
Nice full body that balances out with a refreshing burst of acidity right up front. Sweet juicy Mandarin orange thought the whole cup accented with cinnamon stick and caramel. Although the nice acidity you would expect from a Kenya is present, it's a lot more gentle than most. Overall this City+ roast speaks well of this coffee.
The aroma has a rich and sweet cocoa allure, especially as it's brewing. The flavors are nutty, sweet cocoa with a touch of fresh tobacco leaves. The acidity is very mild but adds to the cleanliness of this cup. The aftertaste is a nice sweet milk chocolate that lingers nicely. Early Full City roast promoted this coffee well and suits an all around solid cup.
