Tasting Notes: Black tea, Red currant, Caramel

Nkonge is named after the hill where the coffee cherries were grown. This high-elevation hill fosters a harder, slower-growing cherry. Natural springs find their way out of the hill, making sure its soils are always well watered. The coffee undergoes a natural process at the Heza Washing Station. During the natural process, coffee cherries are floated and hand-sorted, then taken straight to the drying tables. The whole coffee cherry spends between twenty-five to thirty days drying in its own skin, slowly turning from a deep red to a prune-like purple-black once it's fully dry and at the preferred 10.5% moisture level.

Manhattan Nkonge - My Review

I had high expectations when I bought this coffee. Even then, I was pleasantly surprised by the sweetness and velvety smoothness of this coffee! Definitely one of the best coffees I have ever tasted. Would highly recommend!!

Very tea like

Lighter body. A bit muted vs other Manhattan coffees. Drinking as filter.

Not great

I’ve had a few bags from Manhattan and they have all be great. NKONGE however misses the mark. I was eventually able to brew a not terrible cup, but these beans are rough. Had to grind very course and it was still mud and quakers. Not an enjoyable experience getting through these beans.

Don’t write-off Manhattan. They are great otherwise!

Full of defects and quakers and tastes terrible. It's very sad, Manhattan is supposed to be excellent. Not the case.

Not sure which coffee is right for you?
