A polished cup with aromas of vanilla bean and crème de cassis lift into flavors of baker's chocolate and butterscotch finishing with clean honey-roasted almonds and dried figs.

The Kikai Cooperative consists of about 1850 members that contribute a very small average of two and a half bags of green coffee per farmer. In late 2011 the Cooperative began working with Fair Trade to apply for a loan to purchase more efficient and eco-friendly processing equipment. --Tandem Coffee Roasters
