Kenya Muranga AA

Kenya Muranga AA

This is an inexpensive lot of Kenya AA beans (unlike all of our other Kenya offerings which are small microlots), but we liked it and thought it was a good deal. It is from Murang'a county and the Kahuhia washing mill. In light roasts, we are getting orange and lime notes, juicy, red wine, sweet coffee. A little bit lacking on the acidity and the body (its a little thin), but I've had far less interesting Kenya coffees that cost way more. I take it about 30 seconds past the end of the 1st cracks.

But I've been taking it just into the 2nd cracks to get a deep rich fruity dark roast. It loses all of its brightness of course, but it's an interesting option for a dark roast since Kenyan coffee has so much complexity to start with.
