Starbucks Kenya Coffee Beans
This looked great straight away - a nice gentle foam on the top. The only thing that detracted was it seemed to have an oily surface - almost like a mini oil slick swirling around in there. Once you get over that though, the taste is right up there. Us judges now know about the whole Kenya/Altitude/Citrus thing (thanks, Mike Riley of Taylors) so when we read about it on the side of the pack, we were ready to believe it. What was the first thing Judge Coughee said when he glugged it? It tastes of fruit! Hank's still not quite having it though. I'm on it though - a definite lemony twang. It hits you the second it's in your mouth, but it doesn't linger on. When it's gone, it's gone. It's like a fruity bullet just grazing your tongue as it speeds past. A great coffee - would be a 9, but at the usual Starbucks extortionate price of £3.95, it can only score an 8/10 from me.
"Beloved, like the elephant that symbolises it. Bold, like the sun coming up over the Great Rift Valley. And big – awash with a full-bodied juiciness that makes it instantly recognisable to its many, many fans. These qualities are all true of our Kenya coffee. You can recognize Kenya through its tell-tale citrus flavours – grapefruit most often, but sometimes lemon and sometimes tart orange. There’s a sparkle to this coffee, a bright acidity, that makes it so refreshing to drink. In fact, it's a terrific iced coffee on a hot summer day. Enjoy with: A fresh fruit salad"
You can but some Starbucks from Amazon or you can go in their shop. Duh.
