My friend Jen loves me so she gave me another coffee subscription for Christmas, this time from Craft Coffee. I had the option of picking my roast, so naturally I chose light. Then an exciting box of options showed up. I’m used to coffee being called by it’s region or a blend name but SL 34, SL 28 seemed so intriguing I had to try it first. It’s from a region of Kenya called Kiambu. Coffee not only wakes you up and makes you happy, it teaches you geography too. Look up Kiambu, Kenya. Google will show it to you.
As for SL 34, SL 28 it’s very lightly flavored, not at all bitter. It has a very light citrus taste. I’m not sure I would describe it as passion fruit, but the grapefruit flavor is there. It has a nice finish, but I wouldn’t describe it as currant, but the finish is sweet. I actually think the flavor is improved by a touch of milk, not half and half, you’ll lose the flavor with half and half, but a little whole milk is nice, kind of brings out the citrus. It’s nice black too, but the flavors aren’t strong. This is a very light tasting coffee. I think it would be a wonderful coffee to introduce to non-coffee drinkers. Good stuff. You should check it out. Happily, I have many other varieties to try. So stay tuned.
