    jc,

    I know, you gotta start somewhere... I don't question what you are tasting. But I do question buying when there is nothing about who is roasting it, what their expertise is, etc. And the coffees seem like C market type coffees. No milling stations, farms, and the big giveaways that they are WAY overcharging for average to substandard coffees is the "Colombian Supremo" and the "Hazelnut" one is generic and the other is a travesty.

    Just read and research. Don't believe everything you read. Use common sense to differentiate. And maybe order coffee from known, proven, and respected roasters.

    Best on your journey.

    Agree... I thought it was odd they were offering Death Wish coffee..

    I love the review and am a big fan of that type of packaging. Is it just me, or does it make a big difference in the taste quality. I really think so. I'm excited to try this out! You had me a chocolate!

    perfect time for this posting.
    few days ago, I got some great Kenya AA from Jumpinjakjava. and some Bali natural from peterjschemidt.
    As you can see from my photos, Peter (Bali Nat) roasted light/Med & Bob (JJJ) roasted Medium. Beans are all evenly roasted and could not find any defective beans.

    Also, as you can notice, Kenya AA beans are rather large beans (17 to 18 sizes).
    Thanks Bob & Peter for wonderful coffees.

    Since this thread is about Kenya AA, I decided to make some AP with Jumpinjakjava Kenya AA.
    I wanted to see how it would taste if I grind the beans like "french press" grind. Close to Coarse (between Chemex & French Press ground). Normally, I am supposed to grind "fine" for AeroPress, but I decided to try different ground, coarse with much longer steep time (bit more than double).

    Definitely it brings out more lighter yet fruity & really really great acidity. Not whole lot of chocolaty nor caramel notes, but it is still very very good.

    thanks Bob for your wonderful coffee.

    Green Kenyan AA & AB

    There are lots (<- pun) of Kenyan coffees on the market: I have 4 which are not often seen in the U.S. they are available SPOT from 3 private warehouses (Spokane WA, Portland OR, San Diego CA). Minimum order is 1 bag (60kg). Private message for serious inquiries.

    *These were sourced independently and imported directly and in compliance with all necessary import procedures

    We use Kenya AA Samburu Estate in one of our blends but I bring the single origin home to drink. One of the perks of the business, right? Never can decide if I like it better than our Ethiopian Sidamo, maybe it just depends on the day, but it is always a bright coffee. JavaCentral you should get yourself some Sumatra Mandheling or Lintong and compare it side-by-side with the Kenya you have. That should make the differences very apparent and help you better see - earthy, bright, acidity, etc. Although I'll never be able to taste all the tastes in a coffee. When I read SweetMaria's coffee reviews I'm always wondering, 'How's this guy tasting quince, toasted almond, slightly burnt cherry, dark chocolate, and molasses in a single cup of coffee.'

    Also you might want to taste the same coffee at different temperatures -- the flavor can change a lot from fresh brewed to when it attains room temp. And scientifically your taste buds give you better feedback when coffee (or whatever) is within certain temperature ranges.

    I always order coffee only from known and respected roasters. I like coffee so much, that I cannot risk and order it somewhere I know nothing about it.
