The coffee subscriptions for February are going out!
Batch # 1825
There are many coffee grading systems in use across different countries and regions. In Kenya the highest grade available is 'AA'. So what does 'AA' even mean? Coffee is often graded by bean size. As a general rule of thumb the larger the bean the higher the quality. This is because the larger size is indicative of good growing conditions throughout the season. In Kenya the 'AA' grade is the largest size on the coffee grading scale.
This Kenyan coffee is estate grown, 'AA' graded and cups a sweet citrus taste with a syrupy caramel smooth finish.
