The AA designation is the highest grade on the scale and is based on the size, shape, and density of the beans, and after one cup, you’ll know why even an A+ wasn’t lofty enough for this coffee. Maturing in Kenya’s rich volcanic soil, these beans have a sharp, winey flavor with a distinct fruitiness that’s sure to excite the taste buds of even the most jaded coffee aficionado. The beans are roasted a bit darker than you may be used to but we like to bring out the subtle flavor notes the normal Light roast will not. Try it, and find out why these beans are at the top of the class. We dark roast our Kenya AA so that much of the acidity is gone. You get a smoky, dark, bold cup of coffee.
