Kenya AB Honey Bush Medium Roast
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 AB Grade is one of the top grades 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.

Having only received two orders, I had this coffee in the first selection. Having enjoyed it very much, I decided to get a second bag. I was not disappointed.
Everything from Pebble and Pine is excellent but this is currently our favourite. Very efficient service even throughout Covid19 and the lockdown; I cannot imagine buying my beans from anywhere else. Thank you Dave.
Honey bush is an apt name
My absolute fave coffee is Huehuetenango but I got this to try because the reviews and description sounded to my taste. It is lovely and I can recommend it, even though it cannot beat my favourite!
This really is one of the best coffees I have tasted. Range and depth of flavour is fantastic.
