With an aroma of and flavor of grapefruit, tamarind, hibiscus and cane sugar which gives the coffee a bright, tangy acidity feel with a bergamot aftertaste.
Kenya is situated along the East African Coast and the equator. The country is surrounded by Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia and Somalia. Arabica Coffee beans was introduced by French Missionaries around 1894. The first commercial coffee plantations were established around 1908. Kenyan Coffee is celebrated as one of the top bold and distinctive flavor profiles in the coffee world. Most of the top producing areas are found around the second tallest mountain in Africa, Mt. Kenya which stands at 5199 meters.
The rich volcanic soils coupled with an annual rainfall of around 1,000-1,200mm makes the ideal climate to develop the top aroma and flavor notes the Kenya Peaberry produces. Each county has small farms who generally band together to form local grower associations and/or cooperatives as well as larger estates giving the country a diverse production base. Our Kenya Peaberry is a fully washed coffee.
