Kenya AA CP Select Zoom

Kenya AA CP Select

Following the first plantings of the coffee tree in Kenya in the late 19th century, this country has developed some of the most sophisticated coffee production, processing and marketing systems on the African continent.


KenyaKenya AA is generally regarded as the most popular of the African coffees and is typically grown on the sides of mountains, such as Mt. Kenya, at an elevation of 4,200 to 6,800 feet. It is mainly grown on small estates and processed at one of several mills.


The AA signifies the best grade from Kenya, where coffee is graded by bean size. Kenya AA has full body, delicate acidity, and a smooth winey flavor.


By the way... What's CP Select? Well, coffee is a yearly crop and much like wine, some crops really sing. While all Specialty Coffee farmers do their best and many farms are extremely consistent, sometimes the magic moves around. On our menu you'll see a number of farms called out by name; La Minita, Kauai Coffee, La Torcaza and others with established records for high quality and consistency. But you'll also see a number of choices we call CP Select. CP Select choices are instances where things need to change in order to stay the same. And that's where we're a little different.


East AfricaOur CP Select choices like our Estate choices are chosen for their high quality in combination with choosing for consistency from order to order. That's for you. This can be an important element when you've found a type of coffee you love or a certain blend you've created that you want to maintain. Perfection is a difficult goal but we do strive for that ongoing level of quality and consistency in each CP Select choice; that its same as possible each time you order. While those CP Select coffees do lose their bag to bag pedigrees as we source our beans from different importers. Who in turn source from different farms as we search for our choices. They do carry our brand on the site, that's our seal of approval as a CP Select choice. Familiarity and consistency order to order. Our philosophy in the beans menu is one of "jewels and jeans." We absolutely have jewels such as Cup of Excellence beans and many other extraordinary Rock Stars of coffee. And, we also offer super high quality "blue jeans" of coffee; familiar, comfortable, worry free, trustworthy, high-quality daily drivers. These are our CP Select beans. Equal quality chosen for repeat orders.

      A nice Kenyan. I'm not a professional cupper but will give my description. I've had a few different Kenyan coffee's this year - Compared to most of them it's not as highly fruited and complex however it does have some nice type of Citrus and the winey character is nice and more noticeable not being distracted by several flavors..
