Kenya has a strong identity, and no coffee is truly similar. However, it is worthwhile to compare it to Ethiopian Sidamo. Look for the telltale African acidity and fruitiness in each coffee.
Unlike most origin countries, Kenya has a formal coffee marketing organization that cup tests every lot of coffee before it is sold. Each lot of coffee is cupped and graded, then sold at auction. Starbucks does not buy coffee at the auction; rather, their vendors buy coffees they think Starbucks will like and sends them offer samples. Starbucks buys coffee primarily on how it tastes, which is why they don't specify Kenya grades such as "AA" or "A". These grades refer solely to bean size.
Finding and purchasing the best green beans in the world is the first step that differentiates Starbucks Coffee from the rest of the coffee industry. Starbucks is well-known for its exceptionally high quality coffees, care in selection, and expertise in roast. Each coffee is selected for the defining qualities that distinguish its origin. This careful selection process illustrates Starbucks passion for buying and roasting the world's best coffee.

Exotic and Smooth
Often described as having currant, blackberry, or grapefruit flavors, but my taste buds disagree. I found it to be smoky and lighter than the rest of the bold and extra bold coffees. Of the five types of Starbucks beans which we bought this month, this is the only one that my girlfriend enjoyed without cream/sugar.34 of 59 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you?
