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.

Cupping Notes: Very good acidity, silky body, strong notes of apricot, stone fruit, citrus, and currant.

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

I roast my coffee on an outdoor, homemade “Rocket” wood stove. I use a “Whirly Pop”, and stir and shake the beans. I have been doing a lot of that my results are very consistent, and I prefer a medium roast, when it is just getting a little dark. This is the best coffee I have ever roasted. I bring coffee to people and they consistently say it’s the best they’ve ever had and all this coffee is the best that I’ve ever roasted. It is absolutely amazing. To my palate it is a little bit creamy, has little bit of vanilla and a little chocolate. It has very nice sweetness, no sugary taste at all, but very smooth and pleasant. I use a stainless steel filter, so it has a wonderful mouth you and feels a little thick to me. know some people don’t like that feeling but I love coffee that has a thickness to it. It is absolutely no bitterness at all, but I can taste a little bit of acid in and I love that flavor. It is especially good when it cools down a little bit when the flavor nuances come out. I It is not fruity at all like an Ethiopian coffee. I definitely like the central African coffee and until I roasted this Kenyan, my preference was Tanzanian. When I purchase coffee again, I’m going to get at least 10 pounds.

I have enjoyed Kenya AA Select for several years. I roast the beans in an old Behmor 1600 roaster which I have owned for 10+ years. I do a medium roast which makes a fine cup of coffee. I grind the beans fresh every morning and make the coffee in an older model Bonavita insulated coffee pot. Delicious!

I have a super automatic coffee machine. I have to have fresh beans, as oily beans will gunk up the grinder. I love the Kenya beans I get from the Coffee Bean Corral. I roast them lightly as that is the flavor I like, and even in a super automatic my coffee has a very rich, awesome flavor.

I have been very pleased with the quality of this Kenyan coffee and I have purchased it over a period of a couple of years now. I just have my small home roaster that works fine. The taste is superb and when I have shared my beans with friends, they say it is the best coffee they've ever tasted. One of these people worked in a coffee house and purchased for the store in the past, so I would say that is a good confirmation on the quality of your beans.

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 no 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.
