In my past two trips to Starbucks for its Clover-made coffee, I've tried their Tanzania Blackburn Estate (review) and their Ethiopian Nardos (review). Today I went for the Kenya Kiamariga, a new offering that's not yet on its Clover website. The in-store write up on this coffee said it has "flavors of candied tangerine and star fruit (that) anchor this coffee, with a floral aroma."
I certainly got some nice juicy acidity, but this coffee is ruined by the roast. It starts off really nice, with the citrus-like acidity building and building...until it turns into a mess on your palate of burnt char flavor. Also has a tang similar to sweet tart candy. Unfortunately the dark roast sits above all of these nice flavors like a heavy blanket, eventually smothering any chance they had of expanding their breadth on your tongue.
At least it was free - Starbucks is giving away free coffee to everyone who voted today - even its Clover coffees.
