I really enjoyed this coffee–a bright light morning coffee. I had it brewed, Hario’d, and french press. In the Hario it really came alive–explosive citrus and honey tones. One of the better coffees that I have gotten from Kean.

CASE 62: Beiko’s "Enlightenment"

Beiko had a monk ask Kyôzan, “Do people these days really need enlightenment or not?”

Kyôzan said, “It is not that there is no enlightenment, but how can it be helped that it falls into the second class?”

The monk went back to Beiko and told him about it.

Beiko deeply agreed.
