The Kenya AA Select +

Weight 16 oz

Cupping Notes: Very good acidity, silky body, strong notes of apricot, stone fruit, citrus and currant.

Additional Notes:
The Kenya AA Select + is cooperatively produced by a number of small farm holders in the central Kenyan farmlands surrounding Mt. Kenya. The main growing regions extend from the 17,000 foot, central peak of Mount Kenya all the way to the outskirts of the capital city of Nairobi to the south.

The individual lots are consolidated at the local mill where they undergo a stringent double fermentation method, sometimes referred to as ‘Kenyan Process,’ that accentuates its complexity. The parchment is sun dried on raised beds and transported to the Nairobi Coffee Exchange where it is graded for bean size, cupped for quality and ultimately sold at auction. This lot is the highest grade of Kenyan coffee (17/18 screen or AA).

In the cup it has very good acidity, a silky body, strong notes of apricot, stone fruit, citrus and currant. Kenya has long been established as leader in high-grade East African arabica. With regards to acidity and brightness, Kenya is widely recognized as the bar—its best lots are famed for their fruity, clean, complex profiles, offering balance and pronounced tasting notes of everything from berries and stone fruit to sweet citrus, rightly fetching a handsome auction price.
