This Kenya AA is for those of you who love African coffees that are bold and full of intense flavor. This coffee produces a unique range of flavors that emerge in different parts of the coffee cooling in your cup. Expect the citrus of grapefruit and kiwi with a hint of sugary caramel sweetness and the distinct flavor of fine black tea. The body of the coffee is moderately heavy while the acidity from this coffee is readily evident in the citrussy notes. To bring out the lovely sweetness this coffee has to offer, we have roasted it to a medium level, but definitely not too dark so all the delicious fruit flavors are pronounced more than the roast itself.
We assure you, you’re going to love it!

Kenya AA is sourced from the Kenyan open auction system, which is part of the Nairobi Coffee Exchange. The quality of coffee and transparency in access has allowed for strong prices relative to other origins. Most coffee is grown in the hills surrounding Mount Kenya, where the rich soil helps produce high quality coffee. Farmer plots are exceptionally small and are generally classified by number of trees in production rather than the physical area of the farm. This allows farmers to exercise significant control over the coffee picked and delivered to the local wet mill. These mills have an abundance of water, which allows for the high-end washing methods that showcase the hallmark Kenyan profile.
