Kenyan coffee is amongst the best in the world. This comes down to a number of factors:
- The altitude and soil is ideal for coffee.
- The varieties grown in Kenya were developed there and suit the terroir perfectly.
- The nationalised auction system – which is nearly 80 years old – works very well at connecting buyers with the very best coffees.
The two things that characterise Kenya coffee are their intense fruited acidity and their buttery/creamy body and mouthfeel.
