Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
Heart Kenya Gachatha. Look what the mailman delivered this week. This is actually a AA coffee from the Nyeri district that has fully washed SL28 and SL34 beans blended. Very classic afternoon cup of coffee as it is incredibly round milk chocolatey and generous. What’s missing is some complexity, so the coffee has a slightly boring personality as a result. Perfectly decent stuff, and I think @heartroasters nailed the roast, but the beans just leave me somewhat cold. I’ll drink it, mind you, but this was not worth the price of admission for me.
I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
