Kenya, Gichathaini AA Coffee Beans
- Nyeri, Kenya
- Processing Method
- Extended Kenya Double Washed
- 1930s SL Base Selection
Kenyan coffees are back in season and they are better than ever! First up is this banger from Nyeri, Kenya called Gichathaini AA. We, unfortunately, were unable to travel to Kenya this year to cup hundreds of Kenyan coffees provided by Dormans. But our friends over at Dormans were gracious enough to send us some of the top lots of the year to choose from. This Gichathaini was one of the three coffees that stood out the most to use for obvious reasons. The balanced intensity and complex flavors were so intriguing. We get notes of bourbon barrel vanilla with a peach finish.
This coffee is processed with the classic extended double wash which is a common practice in Kenya. The “AA” in the name refers to the sorting of the beans. “AA” is the largest sized bean followed by the more medium size “AB” and finally the smaller size is referred to as “PB” or peaberry. This is truly a special coffee that deserves all the recognition for all the work put into it. From the farming to the processing and from the roasting to the brewing. We hope you enjoy this coffee!
