It's been a couple of years but Karimikui is back! We have very fond memories of this beauty from Kirinyaga, so we're a teeney tiny bit excited to welcome her back into our lives. Full of tangy citrus fruits like grapefruit and orange, with that pleasing zesty peel bitterness. Backed up with rich toffee and early grey tea florals...yummy yummy yummo.
