CUPPING NOTES: Chocolate, Stone Fruit, and Caramel with a Full Acidity and a Medium Body
One of the premier coffee-producing countries in the world, with coffees primarily sold through the unique government-run auction system. Kenyan coffees are graded by size with the AA and PB (peaberry) being the most common among premium coffees. The simplicity and transparency of the Kenyan auction system tends to reward better coffees with better prices.
Kenyan coffee is among the most balanced and complex in the world, renowned for its powerful, wine-like acidity and sweet fruity notes. The best Kenyans are typically exceptionally clean, with a long finish. Citrus notes predominate in some offerings, berry in others.
