Our new Kenya AA Select Plus is produced by a number of small farmers in the central Kenyan farmlands that surround Mt. Kenya. It is a single-origin coffee from the Nairobi Coffee Exchange, and considered some of the best quality coffee in the world! The Kenyan Process is a double fermentation method where the puled cherries are soaked twice in fermentation tanks and are sun dried on raised beds for 1-2 weeks. The lots are consolidated at a local mill and go through a double fermentation method before it is sun dried on raised beds. The Nairobi Coffee Exchange grades the beans, cups the coffee, and sells it at auction where we buy it for you.

Try before you stock up with a 1/2 pound sample!

Silky smooth coffee with good body and great mouth feel. As others have mentioned, a hint of pepper and chocolate, and not much acidity. Aftertaste...well, you want it to last forever! I normally drink Cafe Au Lait to be easy on my stomach, but I could definitely drink this black. Seems like it would make a great espresso. Next time I visit my daughter I have to take some and make espresso. This has been the easiest Kenya coffee to roast so far. It went into a vigorous and sustained first crack the first time I tried it. There is fiddling necessary! I used the technique I developed for big Kenyan beans which were problematic for me in the past - an extended drying phase slowly approaching 400°F and then a constant temperature around 408°F through the first crack. When it got about to the end of the first crack I turned off the heat and let it coast a minute then quickly cooled it down.

I am not eloquent enough to write a review, however, this is my favorite coffee to roast. I have tried other African beans, Columbian, Kenya remains my favorite.

Nice and balanced coffee. Has a slight peppery bight, but has strength and body. Good coffee!

This is my all time favorite coffee. It always roasts up nice. Whether it’s city roast or French roast, the beans deliver the smooth and delicious coffee ever. The beans give a somewhat chocolate flavor and no acid. The shaff is easily removed after roasting so there isn’t a lot of skin in the batch. I love to share it with my friends.

I found that roasting this up to the 14 minute 30 second mark on my roster which is right before second crack, Gave me the flavor profile I was hoping for. Great coffee, will be ordering more.

Roasted to a medium dark- Even though I'm a fan of cream and sugar this one I drink black. Nice mild taste with lots of complexity, low acid, bitterness is only noticeable when brewed extremely strong.
