We have sampled a lot of Kenyan coffees and most of the time, we find them too acidic for our tastes. It's hard to find an origin we can trust and a taste profile that really impresses us. But we love this new Lenana. Lenana is one of the original cultivation regions of coffee, and on the slopes of Mt. Kenya there are subpeaks that have just the right altitude and terroir. Lenana coffee cultivation has a centuries-old tradition of care and quality.
This coffee is a mix of Arabica sub-varieties and is fully traceable to the individual farmers. Flavor notes: Cinnamon, nutmeg, marzipan, melon. Add a buttery profile in Dark Roast.
1 pound green unroasted coffee beans.
