A speciality coffee giant, alongside some of its East African neighbours, Kenya is highly renowned as one of the greatest coffee producing countries in terms of quality. With a fraction of the coffee history of its Northern neighbour Ethiopia, Kenya excelled in production in the 1950’s and now has some of the most highly educated producers alongside the perfect coffee growing environment.
I always find it very difficult to opt for anything other than a Kenyan when I see it on filter in a cafe. The unique and extraordinary flavours that certain Kenyan coffees hold is remarkable. Often bright with layers of complex berries as well as streaks of wine toned acidity wrapped in sweet fruit. Best prepared as a pour over, the cup often evolves as it cools.
