Tonx’s Kenya Katarina

This beautiful Kenya was my first stab at a coffee offering from one Los Angeles’ newest roasters, Tonx Coffee, and was gifted to me by a friend in Oakland. In fact it made an almost comic journey to my cup: roasted in L.A. and shipped to Oakland, only to make its way all the way back to my new Southern Californian home as a gift. It’s an amazing world we live in.

Tonx is new and small. He (“Tonx” being both his company and his nickname) offers up extremely small batches of coffees he finds exceptional and is exclusively mail order. And he runs out fast.

Distinct from some other Kenyas I’ve tasted by the balance achieved between it’s dark sugar and its fruity sides. Molasses, fruit punch and apples & cinnamon. Gorgeous.
