“Kenya” dig it? It’s prime summer campfire season, and we’ve found the coffee to match. Coava Coffee’s big, bright Kenya Karuthi AA is cozy, toasty perfection, for a full body of syrupy blackberry jam, fire-roasted chestnuts, and a hint of gingery spice. Whether you’re waking up with the sun or gazing up at the summer stars, this lush, romantic cup will warm you up in all the right ways.
These AA-grade beans are sourced from the Othaya cooperative, a well-known name in Kenyan coffee. Formed in 1956 with 250 farmers, the association now has 19 mills and 15,000 members! The Karuthi mill produces sweet, complex, and distinctive coffees, grown in the rich soils of the volcanic Aberdare mountain range— a UNESCO world heritage site and protected habitat for rare and endangered butterflies, birds, plants and animals. Since Coava conducts a personal assessment of every farm they partner with, we know these beans are high quality, the growers are supported, and the lands are preserved. If healthy land grows great coffee, no wonder this cup is so sweet!
Coava crafts this medium-roast Kenyan for a full, syrupy body and deep, rich flavor profile of dark fruit, toasted nuts, a hint of spice. In addition to drip, this roast makes a fantastic espresso and, with milk, gives a hint of black cherry ice cream. This isn’t a Kenyan to sip, it’s one to wrap yourself in. Reserve a bag of Coava’s lush, velvety Kenya Karuthi AA, and enjoy this big, bold cup of blackberries, spice, and everything nice. It’ll light your fire.
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Brewed this in a Hario syphon, very drinkable coffee, nice chocolate tones. Very smooth and drinkable any time of the day, recommended.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Brewed in a pour-over bodum. Ground the beans fresh which were roasted on 7/15/19. Today is 7/24/19. Definitely getting the chocolate tastes but no coconut (which I would have loved) or blackberry/spice. Still made a great cup and I would definitely enjoy an entire bag of this coffee.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Very nice coffee. Quite rich and bold with some nice blackberry like notes. I did not really get much coconut from it, which I was really looking forward to, but still enjoyed it and would like to get a full bag. Brewed french press.|
