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.

Flavour Profiles Buttery, Caramel, Chocolate, Plum & Berries
Roast Profile You need to take care with Kenyan's and we only roast to light/medium or all those lovely sweet and blackcurrent notes just disappear. We also find Kenyan's roast better in traditional drum roasting machines not fluid air bed types as the slight inconsistencies developed on the bean add to the character.(We only roast this in our vintage STA drum roaster not the Sivetz fluid air bed roaster) A lower heat is used and the beans are removed a minute or so after first crack once the colour has turned chestnut brown.
Cupping Notes 1. Acidity - For a Kenyan this has a medium fruity acidity which is lovely and does not overpower. 2. Sweetness - great sweetness. 3. Body - A near full body roasted to this level. 4. Balance - great balance of flavours, and pleasant after-taste, especially for those who like little/medium acidity. 5. Character - A full bodied, full tasting coffee, strong and smooth with hints of blackcurrants, caramel and butter, superb for the price.
Origin Notes This AB + Bora estate coffee comes from a number of plantations and was bought at a government auction. We therefore have little providence information. The coffee was actually delivered to us by our merchant by mistake but we loved it so much we kept it! AA's are supposed to be the best coffees from Kenya (Beans being designated by the size, shape, and density of the beans), but I can't fault this AB coffee!

The rich volcanic soil, temperate climate and seasonal rains combine to produce coffee that is so well balanced it is almost sublime.Kenyan coffee has a strong, distinctly bold flavour and a high, smooth acidity with a mellow after-taste similar to wine.

Reviews

An enjoyable coffee
By
I decided to go for the select your own pack for my first foray into grinding beans myself, as I'm a very recent convert to making "proper" coffee, and this was one of my choices.

It was another good choice, again stronger than I'm used to but once I got it right amount wise was very pleasant to drink.

Another thumbs up from me :-)
