Yes, and you describe the cup very well. This one is a beauty. If you like this one, though, you must try the Ndaroini. I think it is even better. It is also a more in your face medly of flavors than the Hiriga, not to detract from the Hiriga though, because both are excellent in their own ways. Cheers! ---Have any of you folks tried this coffee? This is a real treat! The light, sweet, lemony citrus notes of this cup are well balanced by the soothing body and somewhat silky mouthfeel. This is a very refined, relaxing and refreshing cup of coffee. I am not a tea drinker, but this coffee brings to mind sitting on a veranda overlooking the valley and being thoroughly absorbed in a cup of lemon tea.
Thank you, Jeremy. I have two pounds of the Ndaroini. I shall have to roast some of that this weekend. Eddie On 11/21/06, Jeremy DeFranco wrote: <Snip>
I may have to move this one up on the roasting schedule. Les On 11/21/06, Eddie Dove wrote: <Snip>
When I roasted the Ndaroini, I had not had any Kenyan coffee in a while and it was so awesome. Reminded me why I love the Kenyan coffees. I then had to roast the Hiriga so it would be ready when I finished the Ndaroini. I'm glad I have 5 lbs of each. On 11/21/06, Les wrote: <Snip>
Jeremy, I just got around to roasting it this past weekend and am enjoying it now. I have a cold or something right now, but very oily / silky and a good lemon pepper. Eddie On 11/21/06, Jeremy DeFranco < jeremy.defranco> wrote: <Snip>
Eddie, Glad you got to try this out! Ndaroini does have a very pleasant zing to it. Last time I roasted it I got some grapefruit in the cup.

Jeremy, You are indeed correct ... lemon and pink grapefruit today; all of the spice is gone. Citrusy, but not tart. There is a subtle, but present aftertaste of sugar running down your throat ... like when you add too much sugar to a cold drink and you drink the last of it. This really comes to life with rest. I'm sorry this one is gone ... I would have loved to have some of this in the stash. Eddie On 12/13/06, Jeremy DeFranco wrote: <Snip>
I just finished this one up this morning. It wasn't my favorite Kenya, but was a nice break from all of the low tone coffees. I agree that the lemon and grapefruit were very good. I am going to roast this afternoon. I am not sure what I am going to roast. Tue roast schedule is ready to go! Les On 12/17/06, Eddie Dove wrote: <Snip>
