Drink of the Week: Handsome Coffee Roasters Kakuyuni Kenya

Originating in the highlands of Kenya before making its way to our 2014 Coffee Bar of the Year—Handsome Coffee Roasters in Los Angeles—today’s Drink of the Week is processed at the Kakuyuni factory in central Kenya and is unlike any other Kenyan coffee we’ve tasted. Grown in volcanic soil at an elevation of more than 3,000 feet, ripening is slower for these coffee cherries, which were harvested this past summer. In the mug it smells like fresh-baked brownies and has a fruity acidity with an underlying earthiness—another home run from the Handsome Coffee crew.
