In a Class of Its Own - Kenya AA Coffee
If you’re looking for a full-bodied coffee that is smooth and mellow, with no bitterness, then Kenya AA Coffee could be the one for you. Kenyan coffees are known for their deliciously sweet, berry fruit flavours and intense acidity, and Kenya AA embodies all these excellent characteristics, and more. In Kenya, coffees are graded using a combination of bean size and quality. After being hulled, the coffee beans are mechanically shaken through sieves to determine their grade. Those with an AA rating are the specially selected larger beans that are considered superior and therefore more valuable.
Some of the finest coffees in the world come from Central Kenya, and the knowledge and expertise of Kenyan coffee farmers, along with research and development of farming practices has ensured the quality of their coffee is consistently high. Kenya AA Coffee is grown in the fertile Nyeri region of the Aberdare foothills, where the amazing spectacle of Mount Kenya can be seen. This magnificent area has lush forests of eucalyptus and acidic red soil that provide the perfect environment for coffee production. Predominantly grown on smallholder farms, coffee is cultivated at altitudes of 1,200-2,300m, (3,900-7,500ft), where it is usual for two crops a years to be produced.
