Kenya AB Akusi Coffee Beans
Kenyan coffees always produce a nice smooth complex bean. I wouldn't call them a more bold cup of coffee, and this one follows suit. It is very fruited and has some unique notes to it. It is an absolute standout, with intense blueberry and red fruit notes, a delicate acidity and a rich, heavy cream–like body.
This coffee was produced by the Akusi Farmers Co-operative Society, which has approximately 600 members. The average farm size is less than half a hectare or about one acre. Co-op members selectively handpick their cherry and deliver it to the wet mill the same day it’s harvested. Red, ripe cherries are separated from under-ripes, over-ripes, and any foreign matter. The wet-milling process utilizes clean river water, which is re-circulated before it’s disposed of in seepage pits. Before the coffee is delivered to the dry mill for secondary processing, it’s dried in the sun on traditional raised beds.
