NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

Kenya AA Blue Mountain

Country of Origin: Kenya
Kenya AA Blue Mountain
TIP: You can save products to your favorites list if you log in
The Blue Mountain varietal has arguably the most storied history in coffee, dating back roughly to the early 1700s when a single plant it made its way from France to the island of Jamaica and was eventually cultivated successfully in the lush Blue Mountains rising up behind Kingston. In the early 20th century it made its way back to the fertile, tropical highlands of Western Kenya, where it flourishes despite its sparing production. The country's predominant varietals, SL28, SL34, Ruiru-11 and the relative newcomer, Batian, receive the lion's share of planting hectareage.
My biz partner Faisal's large farming and enterprise family, under the umbrella Abundancia Coffee, owns and tends properties all over Kenya. Their Blue Mountain AA comes from Gusii (Gusiiland), Kusii District in the Western highlands. Elevation is 1800 meters, is triple-picked/fermented and dried of raised African beds. In recent years this coffee has been much lauded from Coffee Review to the Good Food Awards in San Francisco. Berry, bergamot, chocolate notes…bada bing cherry! Light(ish) roast with lots of sweetness in the finish and nice acidity, great pourover and Chemex.
Quantities limited!
 1 lb. bag $19.95 lb.

"I am insatiable! Are you guys coating those beans with something? If so, keep it up. It seems I have never enjoyed a cup of coffee as much as I do now. I go way back in my quest for great coffee. I started 1960-61. I would take a bus into the City then a train down to McNulty's in the Village. I would get these great beans that I would grind up at home. My parents did not understand why I would spend so much on coffee beans when I buy a can of "Chock Full Of Nuts" for $2.89 a pound (16 oz back then in a can). Over the years I followed all the info that was available for brewing the best cup of coffee. I started buying bottle water from Italy to use in my Bunn coffee maker. I even roasted green beans to get the freshest flavor. So fast forward to 2010 in PDX and I am still buy coffee beans from a NY guy. "
