One of  the powerhouses of  the African/Pacific Rim coffee market, Kenya offers many wonderful coffees to the world.  Even though they were not the first to introduce coffee to the world, they have come very close to matching Ethiopia market stand on good arabica coffee.  Coffee from Kenya is of the 'mild arabica' type and is well known for its intense flavor, full body, and pleasant aroma. Don’t like the word ‘mild’ push you away from this coffee because it is far being a timate coffee.  There are many types of  Kenya coffee and they are all good but we offer what we think is an outstanding coffee from the region of  Nyeri.   The major coffee growing regions in Kenya are the High Plateaus around Mt. Kenya, the Aberdare Range, Kisii, Nyanza, Bungoma, Nakuru and Kericho.  The high platea Kenya AA coffee beans are grown at elevations higher than 6,600 feet above sea level. Kenya AA is considered to be one of the world’s finest specialty coffees.  

Our selection of  Kenya Grade AA coffee comes from  the coffee farms in Nyeri  area which is located in  the Central Highlands of Kenya.  This coffee is consider one of best in the Kenya coffee market today.


About 70% of Kenyan coffee is produced by small scale holders. It is estimated that six-million Kenyans are employed directly or indirectly in the coffee industry. While it may be widely known as a type of Kenya coffee, Kenya AA is actually a classification of coffee grown in Kenya. All Kenyan coffee is graded after it is milled. Grades are assigned based on the screen size of the bean. Beans with a screen size of 17 or 18 (17/64 or 18/64 of an inch) are assigned the grade AA, generally the largest bean. While the large bean size is considered by many to be a sign of quality, it is important to note that it is only one of many factors in determining high quality coffee. Kenya Coffee is traded once a week at the Nairobi Coffee Exchange.

Notable coffee estates, cooperatives and factories



The acidic soil provide excellent conditions for growing coffee plants.  Despite its proximity to Ethiopia (believed to be the region from which coffee originated), coffee was not cultivated in Kenya until 1893, when French Holy Ghost Fathers introduced coffee trees from Reunion Island. The mission farms near Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya, were used as the nucleus around which Kenyan coffee growing developed.
