|Nyeri growing region, south-central Kenya
Delicately sweet and savory. Meyer lemon, blackcurrant, geranium, cedar and black tea in aroma and cup. Sweetly crisp, resonant acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Dark chocolate and raisin consolidate in a deep, long finish.
Despite challenges ranging from unclear government coffee policy and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands to chronically unstable weather, the famed Kenya coffee auction system and its participating cooperatives continue to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. This Kenya was produced by the Tambaya wet mill, a member of the Rumukia Farmer’s Co-op Society, from trees of the admired SL28 and SL34 varieties. AA is the highest grade of Kenya coffee based on bean size and fewest physical imperfections. Established in 2010, Red Rooster is an organic-certified micro-roaster focusing on socially conscious coffee and high-quality coffee.
