J Martinez Kenya AA Miricho Estate Medium Roast single origin coffee comes from the Miricho Estate near Thika in the central highlands of Kenya and is a pure hand-selected coffee, never blended with inferior beans. Coming from an African region known for its well-educated coffee farmers, you will notice the care given to this distinct bean that will captivate you with its boldness. The grower, Python Mwangi, is a past chairman of Kenya's national coffee board.

Quality control is taken very seriously by the Kenyan coffee exporters. All coffee beans are graded after they are milled, with AA as the highest grade, denoting the largest sized beans. AA coffee is generally considered to be of a higher quality than the other grades and fetches the highest prices at the weekly auctions where coffee is traded.

Coffee was first cultivated in Kenya in 1893 by the Fathers of the Holy Spirit, and the growing Kenya coffee industry developed around these early mission farms. The majority of coffee beans in this country are grown by small land holders. Kenya's mountainous terrain and acidic soil provide optimal growing conditions, though production has decreased significantly over the past twenty years.

The J Martinez Kenya AA Miricho Estate’s strong, fruity aroma immediately suggests the robust flavor that bursts through every sip. Characteristic of many African coffees, this roast has a high acidity and brightness that is extremely balanced. Though it is sharp, the medium body ensures this coffee will never weigh you down. And the signature wine-like aftertaste of Kenyan coffee offers a lasting impression.

Until recently, Kenya AA Miricho Estate was almost exclusively sold to the coffee-loving sheiks of the Arabian Gulf. Now, you too can sample this exquisite AA coffee from Kenya's Miricho Estate.

Kenya AA is available in medium roast and comes in 8oz bags or 1 lb. bags packaged in a gift box.
