ABOUT THIS COFFEE
You will love this memorable, tea-like, Kenya Yara AB which has a deliciously bright taste with a balanced and a silky body. We roast the beans to highlight the rich notes of pink grapefruit, jasmine, lemonade, and starfruit. Smelling the ground coffee, you’re hit with a smell of tropical fruit, tea and a carmely sweetness, with some floral hints.
This coffee really stood out on a table of Kenyans, and was much more reminiscent of an Ethiopian coffee – floral, tea-like, with bright acidity but incredibly balanced.
