i've been remiss in mentioning peter g's counterculture kenya aa nyeri auction lot, the ivinge. you might say i've been too busy drinking it like a fiend.
i love its bright, piquant taste in the cafetiére, and i agree it has the scent of fresh figs, raisins, and an almost beefy aftertaste. i think it'll make a fantastic turkish coffee too.
i offered to share a bit with a colleague of mine who's a yama fanatic. and i must confess he's spent a good part of the week trying to talk me out of some more of it.
no way. i love it; so far i think it's the best of the single auction lots peter's had around, personally.
i should try it in the vac pot, maybe as soon as tomorrow.
maybe it's just the exotic fig thing -- that's not too common in a coffee, you know.
i just really enjoyed it this morning while reading yet another article on how fantastic chocolate is for your health. . .long-time readers know i'm a big fan of valrhona cocoa.
