    Kenyan coffees have been my favorite of the past six months or so. I thought this was a pleasant and smooth one to drink, but didnt have the bright acidity that the ones Ive really liked recently had. I have a bit of a love-hate with two of the characteristics in this coffee, cherry and papaya though, and my wife liked it.

More Details

Roast Level: Light Medium
A Light Medium Roast coffee, sometimes referred to as a "City Roast" or "American Roast," lies between a light and medium roast. This roast level strikes a balance by preserving the coffee bean's unique characteristics while allowing for a moderate development of body and flavor. The beans have a medium brown color, exhibiting a slight sheen of oils, providing a more balanced and nuanced flavor profile. A Light Medium Roast typically highlights the coffee's inherent fruity, floral, or citrus notes, while also providing some of the deeper, richer flavors associated with medium roasts.
Bean Source Country: Kenya
Famed for its bold, bright acidity and fruity, wine-like flavors, Kenyan coffee often features blackcurrant, citrus, and tropical fruit notes. The high elevations, volcanic soil, and meticulous processing techniques contribute to the consistent, high-quality beans, with SL28 and SL34 among the most esteemed varieties.
Bean Source Region: Nyeri
Specialty coffee from Nyeri, a region in the central highlands of Kenya, is highly prized for its bright acidity, complex flavor profile, and rich body. The coffee is often grown at 1,500 to 2,100 meters above sea level, benefiting from volcanic soil and a climate marked by adequate rainfall and moderate temperatures. These factors contribute to the development of coffee cherries rich in sugars and acids, creating a cup that often exhibits notes of blackcurrant, citrus, and tropical fruit, layered with subtle floral and tea-like undertones.
