Pleasant acidity of pineapple and sweetness of lychee
The pleasant acidity of pineapple and big tomato makes your mouth salivate, and the sweetness of lychee adequately complements the acidity. When your tongue gets used to the coffee, the aftertaste of sweet brown sugar then comes and lingers in your mouth for a long time.
There are two types of people that loves Kenyan coffee - the first liked them from the beginning and the other fall for them later. Former are the people who are usually called Kenyan coffee maniacs, and the latter are people who have come to recognize the value of Kenyan coffee for some reason. It is an opportunity to finally open the door to those who thought Kenyan was not their cup of coffee.
Looking that the people that became fond of Kenyan coffee later, like myself, we have a few things in common. First, we try Kenyan coffee constantly, whether intentionally or unintentionally. Then one day, when the stars aligned, we come across a good quality Kenyan coffee. That is when we discover the allure of Kenyan coffee, but we may still be wondering why it is so good. At this point, it is often helpful to have a Kenyan coffee enthusiast around. After hearing why they think it’s good, drinking that coffee again makes you feel more.
Gatomboya is the coffee that inspired me to love Kenya coffee. When I first drank it, I didn’t quite understand why it was good. However, after drinking it several times and listening to the explanation of this coffee lover, what I initially felt as a single strong aroma began to feel like specific notes such as pineapple, lychee, tomato and brown sugar. The moment those vivid notes touched my heart, I felt as if I had entered the world of Kenyan coffee. Maybe it was because the door of my heart, which had been tightly closed, was opened.
It is a coffee I would recommend to those who have not yet discovered the charm of Kenyan coffee. If you want to know something well, you need a moment when you feel good about it. What you see after that is always different from before. Introducing Katomboya, a guide that will lead you into the world of Kenyan coffee.
