Kenya AA coffee, which is grown at elevations of 4,900 to 6,800 feet, is nearing the top of the list of the world’s finest Arabica bean coffees. When it comes to coffee production, Kenya has a reputation for absolute excellence, especially because it lies near the region where coffee beans originated.
These gourmet coffee beans are grown on volcanic soils and are natural-processed; the beans are harvested, immediately removed from the cherries, and washed to remove the excess pulp. This process causes the coffee to have a full body of flavor with a heavy acidity. It also displays a gentle floral aroma as well as berry and citrus notes.
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 rich body, gentle floral aroma and heavy acidity with a distinct fruitiness that’s sure to excite the taste buds of even the most jaded coffee aficionado.
