Thought so Steven. I remember reading about the roast level in your cupping notes.

The taste (brewed in a caffetiere) was quite a shock, the red berry flavours are amazingly strong, and the acidity was also really up front, I've certainly not had anything like this before. I tend to use lower acidity coffees in espresso, with only small ammounts of highlight beans, so this was something new.
After the initial shock, I started to get into it, it was not unlike drinking a red wine.

Just reading about it alsmot makes me cry... I love the Kenyan AA beans i have at home... I was without for a few days and although I don't drink it everyday it felt terrible.
Different beans and a frying pan, Zassenhaus grinder and a couple of moka pots...
