On graduation day, after throwing your mortarboard into the air, you may have thought of the importance of letter grades as a thing of the past, but our Kenya AA beans prove otherwise. The AA designation is the highest grade on the scale and is based on the size, shape, and density of the beans, and after one cup, you’ll know why even an A+ wasn’t lofty enough for this coffee. Maturing in Kenya’s rich volcanic soil, these beans have a sharp, winey flavor with a distinct fruitiness that’s sure to excite the taste buds of even the most jaded coffee aficionado. The beans are roasted a bit darker than other Light coffees we offer (but not dark enough to be oily) to bring out the subtle flavor notes the normal Light roast will not. Try it, and find out why these beans are at the top of the class.
- “Kenya coffee is smooth and aromatic and fresh, like the beans just came off the tree. Has none of that burnt, bitter taste of roasted beans. The beans themselves are a beautiful, gentle, light brown - not shiny and fierce looking. I just adore the smell and taste.”
- “We are a little underwhelmed with this one. My first clue was its lack of bouquet when I first opened the bag...maybe I should've bought the darker roast. It brews nicely in our filter brewing setup but has little aroma for my nose. Taste is excellent, it likes sugar and 1/2 n 1/2 OK, has good color and is a fine acompaniement to breakfast. It lacks character, thus would be a good cup for a broad audience. No one would be excited about this. We are sampling four different coffees right now and it may be that this will be the least dramatic. I'd buy it again but not with great anticipation. Still brewing with pure water, Melitta #4 filter and basket at 192 degrees F into a Bunn stainless vacuum carafe. This is all cleaned rigorously every day.”
- for people with a tea background
“tea-like complexion. flourish of sweetness hits you subtly. bright coffee-high acidity. not what i was looking for in a coffee but tea people or people with a background in tea might be the ones for this coffee.
