Origin Coffee Roasting - Kenya Gakuyuini AA

R 125

This product typically takes 2-3 working days to dispatch


This is yet another sensational AA Kenyan from our friends at Origin Coffee Roasting. Big, bold & bodied, it's a great illustration of why the world loves Kenyan coffee so much.

Its flavours are reminiscent of dark fruit like berries & plums with a wonderful underlying sweetness that we particularly enjoyed in a pour-over. Combined with quite a serious body, we were left with a lingering aftertaste on our palates that reminded us of maple syrup. This coffee also has some delicate characteristics to appreciate, with subtle hints of citrus or even pineapple that show up in certain brews.
