Kenya AA Nyeri Dark Roast - Pearless Estate, Fair Trade

Size: Whole Beans, 12oz

FLAVOR: Blackcurrant, Tangerine, Brown Sugar

Not your classic Kenyan coffee. Lively mandarin orange and Meyer lemon citrus notes beautifully balance fresh berry and grape flavors. The cup shows off a balanced, candied orange acidity and a full-bodied mouthfeel that’s rounded out by a touch of brown sugar sweetness. Every sip is layered with brilliant fruit notes that build up as the cup cools. An empowering, woman-produced coffee with character.

Kenya AA Nyeri Pearless Estate

Our Kenyan AA coffee is farmed on the Pearless Estate, a quality-focused farm owned by Mrs Kiguta. Established in the mid 1920’s by British settlers, the estate is among the oldest and largest coffee plantations in Kenya. This unique estate is infamous for solely farming the most-prized and complex SL 28 and SL 34 Bourbon varieties, a rare opportunity in Kenya where there is a growing use of hybrids.
