    Kenya AA Coffee Review

    I was approached by a wonderful fella on youtube that wanted me to review some of his coffee 'All The Coffee In The World'. I decided, I haven't tried out a Kenya AA coffee and wanted to see what it was like. Needless to say, it was quite good. It had a nice earthy taste with a dark chocolate undertone and was quite smooth. Here's a video of my review of this coffee. If you want to order some online, the website is allthecoffeeintheworld.com

    As i was listening to this coffee guru guying reviewing Kenya AA coffee, momentarily I thought that he was reviewing a fine Sumatra from Indonesia. because he was kept mentioning that Nice Earthy tone. very smooth with no acidity at all. dark chocolate undertone..... well... they are not the good Kenya AA coffee characteristics at all.

    Kenya is most balanced and complex coffee in the world, arguably second best coffee country in the world. Kenya AA is the best quality and biggest beans that kenya can offer and also, it should have strong, wine toned acidity (no acidity at all? that is very strange. because Kenya coffee grows in very high altitude, higher than Guatemala, for refined strong acidity). Kenya's coffee does not have Bold body. it is known for medium body yet with again very complex dimensions. Mostly berry, citrus tones. AND ALWAYS ALWAYS VERY CLEAN CUP (which is kind of opposit spectrum from "earthy..etc".)

    Maybe someone made a practical joke on him. they switched Kenya AA to Sumatra, ha ha ha

    Ensoluna I thought the same as I watched this...I love acidity! I love bright coffees over earthy. When I got my start in coffee I would only drink Indonesian coffees because I was a smoker. It was the only thing I could taste. Over the years of tasting everything I could(and quit smoking) I was drawn to the more acidic coffees. Maybe it was accidentally miss labeled?

    I doubt that it was miss labeled. more likely He does not know what he is talking about or pretending to know what he does not know hoping that we are all numbnuts.

    I agree with ensoluna.

    I think that the most likely is that it is roasted poorly.
    After looking at their website, it's clear that it would be kind to call someone an idiot if they bought any coffee from there.

    I appreciate yalls feed back. I don't doubt this not being a great quality coffee, but I also don't think of myself a coffee pro by any means. Just someone who really likes it to be quite honest. I also don't appreciate the childish remarks. I felt it was a bit unnecessary.

    hello javacentral, it is just that that person on video (was that you?) described kind of completely different and somewhat totally opposite coffee characteristics and flavors than Kenya AA. That was why we were all amused, to say the least. However, I did not want to offend you by it. If I did, I apologize JC. thanks and have a good day.

    Hey ensoluna, yeah, my palate for coffee has just started to get developed so I'm kind of flying by the seat of my pants with this whole coffee tasting thing. I appreciate you explaining all that to me and I'm sorry I got a bit snippy myself. I can see now yall were just pokin fun and I'm sorry for getting my jimmys in a bunch.

    Don't worry about. that is how we learn. I went thru the same thing.
    Long time ago, at cupping table with my customers, I picked out sour apple flavor from a coffee, and all other 7 cuppers around me looked me funny because none of them had sour apple flavor in their cupping sheet.
    it happens a lot as you are learning.

    so, keep cupping and keep posting here.
    it is all about having fun and learning by communicating to each other.
    No one in this forum, specially old timers like me and other guys, has bad intention and we all are willing to help.
    thanks and keep on cupping !!!!!
