This new Kenyan Peaberry Plus is grown in rich, volcanic soil with ample rainfall which is an ideal climate for the development of the aroma and flavor notes that this country's coffees are known for. The PB Plus refers to the smaller screen size, 15/16 and the quality of this bean. Most farms in this part of Kenya are found near the second tallest mountain in Africa- Mt. Kenya. Each country in this region has a number of small farms that work together to make up local grower association and cooperatives as well as larger estates which gives the country a diverse production base.
Cupping Notes: Clean and well balanced with a smooth medium body, crisp and vibrant acidity and a sweet brown sugar aroma with flavor notes of orange, blackberry, grapefruit and nectarine.
