Kenya AA Samburu Medium Roast

Kenya AA Samburu Medium Roast

Regular price £5.75
Size

Kenya is well known for its highly organised network of coffee cooperatives. This system produces remarkable consistency in growing methods, milling, and auctioning across a web of about 150,000 growers, the majority of which are small-scale farmers. The topography of high-altitude plateaus in major Kenyan coffee regions combined with acidic soil provides excellent growing conditions for Arabica coffee.

All Kenyan coffee is graded primarily by screen size (a measure of the size of the bean, larger being higher grade) immediately after milling; it then proceeds to the weekly auction at the Nairobi Coffee Exchange. The AA Grade is the top grade based on screening.

The Kenya profile is very unique and distinguishes itself easily from other origins. Intense citrus brightness all along the palate and notes of vanilla and bergamot merge with complex winey flavors. A medium body provides balance and grounding.

A Touch of the Monsoon Season

I ordered this Monsoon coffee from Pebble and Pine and it was delivered within a few days, an excellent service. I also received a handwritten note from Dave Nixon welcoming me to his company, a very nice touch. I can not fault this company and would have no hesitation in using them again.
My expectations of the Monsoon coffee was very high as I had read a lot about the process of its manufacture. It was not as strong as I had expected and not so vastly different from other top class coffees. Thus saying, I found it to be a really good, tasty coffee, quite light in colour and with no bitter aftertaste. I was expecting a more robust, dark roasted, chocolate flavour, but nevertheless I am not disappointed and would probably order it again as there is no fault with the coffee, the fault being more with me.

Very quick service. Haven’t tried the coffee yet!

Delicious coffee, will order this again

Absolutely delicious coffee, I've ordered this twice and I will definitely order this one again
