Kenya AA Select + (dark)
The Kenya AA Select +
Weight 16 oz
Notes: Very good acidity, silky body, strong notes of apricot, stone
fruit, citrus and currant.
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.

Welcome to Trifecta Coffee Company.
We are centrally located in Albuquerque. For many of our customers we are conveniently located but if you are just visiting from out of town you may have stopped by our shop/bakery/roastery, and now that you are home you find yourself craving our wonderful coffees. Well after many many requests to open an online store we finally got a small select group of coffees available to purchase online. This selection will vary throughout the year but we hope this will keep you coming back to try new exciting coffees that we continually discover.
All our coffees are roasted and shipped within 3-4 days of your order so be assured everything you order from us is fresh.
A WORD about roast styles, We roast our coffee a touch lighter than other shops in town and are currently offering City (light), Full City (medium), and Vienna (dark). We do not roast the same coffee several ways. The roaster picks a profile for a particular regions and tries to stick with it.
All our Coffee is roasted on a Diedrich IR-12 with the automation and most of our coffees are meticulously saved in the profiles the roaster has chosen.
Also for those who are local, checkout our EVENTS page under our shop to reserve tickets or seats for special events as we begin to extend our hours into the evening. This Month we have a Game night along with a fun Sunday Art workshop.
