Kenyan coffee is one of our favourites, for its high acidity and berry-like sweetness. However, the taste profile we have associated with Kenyan coffee is becoming a bit scarce, due to coffee diseases and climate changes. Visiting producers in the country for many years over the last decade, we see how hard the pesticides are to the soil and we were keen to find an organic high-end coffee, which was not easy. Therefore, we are so proud to have partnered up with the Muiri Estate for the second year now, which is certified organic and committed to biodiversity. This is the AA selection, meaning the biggest sized beans from the farm. The AA selection from Muiri estate gives us a juicy cup with notes of hibiscus, black currant and wild strawberries.
