April 2017 - Rwanda Dukundekawa Musasa

The Review: For our October Coffee of the Month we have the Kenyan AA coffee.  Kenyan coffees are among the most distinctive coffees available and experienced coffee tasters can identify a Kenyan coffee from the rich aroma even as the coffee is brewing.  This month's offering comes from mountainous farms located at altitudes over 5200 feet.
