Kunga Maitu at The Wydown

Roaster: Intelligentsia Coffee IMG_3369
Retailer: The Wydown
Beans: Kunga Maitu Kenya
Brew Method: Pour over

This cup had a fruity and chocolatey aroma and a creamy mouthfeel. The coffee was very flavorful and complex, with both sweet and tart, cherry-like flavors bouncing off of the tongue. The acidity and complexity of the coffee made it a true, high-quality Kenyan roast.

Fun Fact: In the Kikuyu language, “Kunga” means brave and “Maitu” means mother. Kunga Maitu is a melody sung by Kenyan children when their mothers return from the farm or market.
