African Coffee

African coffee beans are known for being incredibly flavoursome and many believe that they are the most distinctive in the world. Coffees from this region are characterized by dry, winy acidity, chocolate and fruit undertones, rustic flavours and intense aromas. Here at York Coffee Emporium we sell Kenyan coffee beans and Ethiopian coffee beans, expertly roasted to ensure you can enjoy their fantastic taste.

The most familiar East African coffees are the Ethiopian coffees, such as Ethiopian Yirgacheffe and Ethiopian Sidamo, and the Kenyan coffees, such as Kenyan AA & Kenyan Peaberry.

We supply a great choice of freshly roasted East African coffee beans from Kenya and Ethiopia, all available to buy online!

    Taste

    Kenyan coffee has a strong, distinctly bold flavour and a high, smooth acidity with a mellow after-taste similar to wine. This Kenyan AB plus Bora estate coffee delivers in all departments for an amazing price. A full-bodied, full-tasting coffee, strong and smooth with hints of blackcurrants, caramel and butter, this is delicious any time of the day.

    Facts

    AB plus Bora estate coffee comes from a number of plantations and was bought at government auction. Kenyan coffee is grown in the high altitudes of Kenya's highlands and along the Mount Kenya region. The rich volcanic soil, temperate climate and seasonal rains combine to produce coffee that is so well-balanced it is almost sublime.

    Coffee has been grown in Kenya since 1893 when it was first introduced. The total area under coffee is estimated at 160,000 hectares, about one third of which is the plantation sector with an estimated 700,000 growers working the rest on small-holdings. Kenyan AA coffee is Kenya's premium grade of coffee and is simply a measure of the size, weight and shape of the bean.

    Taste

    Malawi coffee is well known for its full-bodied, soft, rich flavour, fruity aroma and medium acidity. This AA plus Makoka Valley coffee is superb: bright, with delicious plum and white wine notes. It is a bit like a Yirgacheffe but with pine nuts. Absolutely superb in the cafetiere or espresso.

    Facts

    Makoka Valley coffee is from the Southern Thyolo district of Malawi, which was first planted out in 1979. The altitude here varies from 3000 to 3400 feet with terrain of rolling valleys, steepish slopes and patches of indigenous forest retained between the fields of coffee. The soils are a mixture of clay and alluvial, contributing to the unique fruity taste. The coffees are all hand-picked red cherry, with the same trees being re-picked approximately 10 times over the harvest to give a good 85% main grade return.

    Malawi's main branded export coffee is called Mzuzu after the northern capital city from where Malawi's coffee industry is mainly run. The Makoka Valley plantations cater extremely well for their workers, with education, housing, clinics and full family benefits.
