Topic: Kenya Auction Lot 438- Hiriga (8 msgs / 87 lines)
1) From: Jeremy DeFranco
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.

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.

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,
     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. Cheers!

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.

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!
