The Johnson Brothers Mihuti Kenya AA Medium-Light Roast Coffee comes from Mihutiin the Nyera district, which is in the southern part of Mount Kenya in central Kenya. Mihuti is a name derived from the Kikuyu language, which means ‘the tree that makes red flowers during the dry season making the place look beautiful”. How enchanting! And it makes lovely coffee as well! Rated a 91 out of 100 by the Coffee Review this coffee is a very good choice for drip or pour over brewing. The AA is the highest grade of Kenya coffee based on bean size and freedom from defect.
You will sense notes of honey, lavender and cocoa in its aroma. It has a silky mouthfeel and it finishes with a sweet blend of flowers and honey on the palate tempered by a gentle brisk acidity.
