The Kenya Gikirima AA is a product of the Gikirima Factory - a mill located on the slopes of Mount Kenya, servicing smallholder farmers throughout the Embu Region. In addition to bringing excellent coffee to a broader market, Gikirima's stated goal is to increase production throughout its network of small farms by providing farm-level support, agricultural training, education, and access to current information and trends in sustainable agriculture - all with the intent to build transparent, trust-based relationships that extend from farmers to roasters.
The Kenya Gikirima AA is distinctly Kenyan in body and sweetness, but presents incredibly fruit-forward, and spicy notes of Apricot, Blackberry, and Clove. The "AA" distinction refers to the size of screens used to sort coffees - "AA" is the largest screen used in the sorting process. Though not directly related to quality measure, the larger bean size of "AA" and "AB" sorted coffees is a common corollary.
