**.10/lb from each purchase will be donated to Kageyo at the end of the 2019 harvest to help cover the buildout costs for their new wet mill facility. This new coffee processing set up will have a major impact on their ability to efficiently process coffee during the harvest season and help to increase the overall volume of coffee they're able to handle from the surrounding small holder farmers.
This lot from Kageyo shines in both light and dark roast applications, the cup boasting equal parts raw sugar sweetness and complex baking spice notes. The wet aroma has a wonderful honey base note, with smells of spiced tea released in the steam when breaking through the crust. The cup has a buttery toffee flavor when roasted to City/City+ levels, layers of caramelizing sugar sweetness and buttery flavor characteristics giving way to clove and cinnamon powder top notes. A touch of bittersweet candied lemon peel comes through as the coffee cools, as well as an accent of English Breakfast tea in the aftertaste. Middle roasts construct a chocolate undertone, with a finishing flavor of chocolate raisin and snickerdoodle cookies. Kageyo shows well at a wide roast range, and City+ roasts are delicious as a pour over brew. Espresso shots at Full City gush syrupy chocolate notes and with a juicy fruit accent note.
