Topic: The only lonley Kenya offering (27 lines)
1) From: Les
        Wow am I enjoying a good Kenya.  You don't even have to get
confused as to which one to order as there is only one!  Tom says the
following about it: "THIS is the one I am going to want to drink for
my own personal pleasure. After all, it is not every day you want your
tongue ripped out. Mchana is toned down, balanced, and totally
delightful. It has a ripe, sweet quality from start to finish; the dry
fragrance hints at it, but it is in the wet aromatics that the coffee
comes to life. Sweet plum, raisin-currant, grape, cocoa, sweet black
tea; those are the descriptors I list for wet aroma! The follow
through in the cup, in particular the sweet black tea, the plum and
raisin. Mild cocoa is there too, with a dark honey sweetness. The body
is medium, but comes off a bit heavier than it really is because of a
really pleasant silky quality. This is an approachable, relaxed Kenya,
and a vivid contrast to the bolder, brighter, more citric lots we will
have this year."
          If I wasn't on stash reduction, I would order another 5
pounds of this stuff.  This is a Kenya that doesn't blow your head
off.  I am going to do a 50/50 post roast blend with some Brazil DP
for espresso shots  tomorrow.
