This coffee is so one of a kind. It just burst with flavor. It is the most different coffee I have ever had, and it is wonderful. Not a coffee to drink every day, but you almost need it once a week just to remember the great feeling it gives you.

Mild, medium roast
Not much cream and sugar is needed in the Kenya blend with its juicy mild taste. You must try this one!

Not as fresh as expected
Our local Starbucks has ceased carrying most of my favorite beans. I had hoped the web store would be a good alternative. If anything, I thought I could assure more freshly roasted products by ordering from the source. The beans were not fresh. I have gotten more lively Starbucks coffee beans at the local supermarkets. They are a dull brown color and seem dry. The wonderful aroma that comes from a just opened bag of good beans isn't there. Nor are the complex flavors I expect from good Kenyan coffee to be found. The undertones of citrus are missing completely. I will have to start looking for Starbucks stores in larger cities when I travel and hope they will have the varieties I crave in fresh packages.

I visited Kenya in 1992 and fell in love with the coffee. Starbucks roast is much better than any other competitor since they light roast the Kenyan - I prefer the darker roast as it brings out more flavor.

Not like it should be
Kenyan from Starbucks has been my favorite for quite a long while. It has always had it's own distinct flavor, but not with this order. I have only opened one bag of the 7 pounds that I ordered and am not looking forward to the rest, unless this one bag was a fluke.
