If you haven’t tried a Kenyan coffee yet - this will open up your world for what coffee can taste like. If you have tried Kenyan coffee, but you’re reading this, it probably means that you really dig it too. The typical taste profile of a great Kenyan coffee has no likeness in other growing regions, particularly when it comes to the most unique attributes, such as crisp clear phosphoric acidity and often with flavour notes of blackcurrants and rhubarb. Due to climate changes, these flavour notes gets harder to find in Kenya. We are really happy to have Kamwangi AB here for you, it is a crisp and juicy cup of coffee with flavour notes of strawberry cordial and pink grapefruit with a hint of black currant.
