Kivu Peaberry Coffee Country: United Republic of Kivu Grade: Region: Kivu, Eastern Africa Mark: Kivu "Katana" Peaberry Processing: Wet-Processed Crop: Appearance: .8 d/300gr, PB 15-17 Screen Varietal: Unsure Dry Fragrance (1-5) 3.6 Notes: The Kivu produced coffee, it does have a more rustic cup character than you find in the finely processed Rwandas from just across the border (and the lake, Lake Kivu). But we find the cup compelling. The dry grounds are intense, with fragrant cocoa, nut (macadamia nut), and vanilla notes. Add water and the rustic beast comes out a bit: fresh tobacco, wet earth but still a sweetness (molassesy) resides there. The cup is bright, as an East African coffee should be, but there is that unpredictable wild note too. Again, fresh tobacco with an earthy twist is the best descriptors for it. It's a little hidey, as a Yemen is, but there are delicate tea notes (Darjeeling), and even a trace of floral sweetness too. It holds up well to a darker roast level. Wet Aroma (1-5) 3.4 Brightness - Acidity (1-10) 8.5 Flavor - Depth (1-10) 8.4 Body - Mouthfeel (1-5) 3.5 Finish - Aftertaste (1-10) 8.4 Cupper's Correction (1-5) 0 Intensity/Prime Attribute: Medium Intensity/ Cocoa add 50 50 Roast: City + to FC+: I actually find it more intense in the lighter roast, but like the heavy bittersweet chocolate of the darker FC+ too. Score (Max. 100) 85.8 Compare to: Somewhere between bright, cleaner African coffees and funky, earthy Indonesians.
