We are excited to bring you the 1st stop on the 2023 Single Origin Tour.
We search the globe for award-winning coffee and roast it to perfection for your enjoyment!
For the first stop on this year's tour, we are pulling out the stops with a Kenya AA!
Uteuzi Jimbo is Swahili for "county select," and is a Regional Select program designed to highlight the different coffee-growing counties of Kenya. These coffees are traceable down to the region, and are created by blending lots from different factories in each area with the basis of the cup quality and profile.
Most of Kenya's coffee is produced by smallholders delivering to factories (central processing units) who predominantly produce Washed coffees. Estates are also best-known for their Washed lots. The Washed process in Kenya may vary slightly from place to place, but it generally contains a soaking step that is unique to this growing country. First the coffee is picked ripe and depulped the same day, then it is normally fermented in open-air tanks made of concrete or cement for 24–48 hours. It's then washed thoroughly using water channels before being soaked underwater for 12–72 hours. It is then spread on raised beds to dry.
Kenya AA is balanced with sugary sweetness and mouthfeel lots of tangy fruit acidity, caramelized sugar, grapefruit, and toffee flavors.
