Kenya AA by Barnie's Coffee & Tea Review |

  • Kenya AA

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: March 1997
Origin: Kenya Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The Kenya wine tones are lighter here, more Bordeaux than Burgundy. The profile is also simpler than in many Kenyas, but the high, singing tones of the acidity please until the aftertaste, when they turn slightly astringent.

Notes: A simple Kenya profile with high, singing tones of acidity. Grade AA

Who Should Drink It: You could see this one as a compromise coffee: It retains the Kenya profile but the acidity is crisper and brighter, more Latin-American than East African. Should be excellent drip-brewed and drunk black.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
