Africa completes the podium of the most valued coffees in the world with a coffee from its soils. Kenya AA coffee beans, due to their environment with hot and tropical temperatures at the same time and a virgin soil, are characterized by sweet notes of fruits, a wine-like acidity and a syrupy body.
