Kenya Ichimama AA coffee has a grapefruit quality to it that Café de los Muertos really loves. Yes, it can literally make your face pucker, especially as an espresso shot, one of our favorite single origin shots we have ever carried. This bean screams unique, but screams in a nice tone of course. The roasted bean has a sparkly citrus nature with some floral notes. And don’t overlook the body, very nice.
Following the first plantings of the coffee tree in Kenya in the late 19th century, this country has developed some of the most sophisticated coffee production, processing and marketing systems on the African continent. Kenya AA is generally regarded as the most popular of the African coffees, and is typically grown on the sides of mountains, such as Mt. Kenya, at an elevation of 4,200 to 6,800 feet. It is mainly grown on small estates and processed at one of several mills. The AA signifies the best grade from Kenya, where coffee is graded by bean size. Kenya AA has full body and delicate acidity.
