Kenya AA Fresh Roasted Coffee Beans

Kenya AA Wholesale Coffee Beans

Origin: Africa

This product: Seemingly sweet taste with a wine-like or fruity overtone. At a light roast, the peachy, fruity notes are very apparent. If you want a little kick, the dark roast level will be a little rough but the sweetness will be gone and replaced by a carbon-like taste a lot of people enjoy.

Coffee College 101:
Coffea Arabica is a species of Coffea originally indigenous to the mountains of Yemen in the Arabian Peninsula. It also traces to the southwestern highlands of Ethiopia and southeastern Sudan. The coffee beans are also known as Arabica coffee beans. Arabica is believed to be the first species of coffee to be cultivated, being grown in southwest Arabia for well over 1,000 years. It produces better coffee than the other major commercially grown species, Coffea canephora. It is also known as Robusta, but tastes vary. Robusta is a lower grade coffee used more commonly in traditional grocery store brands like Maxwell House and Folgers. Arabica contains less caffeine than any other commercially cultivated species of coffee. The plants grow to between 9 and 12 meters tall, the leaves are a glossy dark green, the flowers are white and the fruit is a drupe, commonly called a berry that contains two seeds we know as coffee beans. After harvesting, the raw products are known as green coffee beans

Coffee originated in Ethiopia where legend has it a goat herder named Kaldi noticed his goats not being able to sleep at night. After watching them, he discovered that this happened only after they ate an unusual berry from what is now known as a coffee tree.

The leader of an Ethiopian monastery used the berries to make a drink and discovered that it kept him up for the lengthy evening prayer. This discovery of the energizing effects of the berries spread east by way of the monks of the monastery and coffee reached Arabia. It than began a journey which would spread its reputation around the world.

By the fifteenth century, one could find coffee growing in the Yemeni district of Arabia. By the sixteenth century you could find it in Persia, Egypt, Syria and Turkey. At some point, someone decided to process the cherries by pulping them and shedding the fruit. Apparently they thought the drink would taste better if it were made from roasted coffee. Good guess and what a concept!

Coffee was not only drunk in homes. This was the beginning of what we now know today as the coffee house. Before they ever sold whole bean coffee, their popularity was equal to none. You would often find many different social activities inside. It was not only a place to drink coffee and converse, but also a place to listen to music, watch performers and play chess. Sounds familiar right?

Travelers brought back stories of the unusual dark black beverage to Europe. By the 17th century, coffee had made its way to Europe and was becoming popular across the continent. The clergy of Venice condemned coffee at first, as it was introduced to the city in 1615. Pope Clement VIII was asked to intervene because it was so controversial but before he made any decisions, he tasted the beverage. He found it so satisfying that he gave it his approval.
