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.
