This is a high grade AA Kenya coffee and one of our favorites. It's just darker than what is considered a true medium roast (for example, our Colombian). It's what some customers have told is the flavor they expect from a good, quality coffee. No charred, bitter notes of a dark roast, but still has a nice milk chocolate tone. Very little acidity and super smooth.
Unique to East Africa is a letter based size grading system. Screen sizes are measured in 64ths of an inch increments. “AA” is the largest size grade, consisting of beans with screen sizes 17 and 18. “AB” refers to 15/16 screen, “C” grade is 14/15 screen and “PB” is the small peaberry bean. Larger screen sizes fetch higher auction prices even today, with much of the international market preferring a large size bean.
Note: All customer orders are roasted on Thursday. Orders must be received by Wednesday morning to be roasted the following Thursday. If purchasing locally, please allow a minimum of four days from roast date for the flavor of the coffee to develop. Thank you!
Also, if you are local, you can choose Pick Up instead of Ship at the end of your order and save on shipping.
