Kenya AA Kiangoi 250gr


Out of stock


Coffees from this origin are quite unique and distinctive, and nothing else tastes “like a Kenya”. Some of the flavours you will find on the cupping table are blackberry, black currant, grapes and intense florals. Besides the common notes, you will also find red berries, plums, stone fruit, hoppy florals, and citrus fruits. We have seen a broader range of flavours in lesser-known growing areas and also due to innovative implementations in the pre and post-harvest.
