I came across Copper Coffee Roasters a couple of months ago. I've taken the time to test 6 of their coffees, some of them several times, before reviewing. I can say that the Kenya AA Acacias is a favourite of mine and it has been consistently good. I have noticed that the coffee has often been roasted the day before delivery and delivery has been very prompt (I live fairly locally). I grind fresh and use a drip coffee machine and can definitely recommend this coffee for that method. This was recommended by Matt when I enquired about good coffees for drip style and it was a good recommendation along with another favourite - the Brazil Peaberry which I also recommend for drip style coffee.
Perfect coffee, delicious and welcome at any time of day, one of the best things from these guys is all the blends can come on course grounds. Which is what is meant to be in cafetières. Most places sell as fine and that perforates usually. So spot on from these guys and it’s all as environmental as possible. 👍
Easy ordering, great customer service, fantastic coffee
One of my favourite coffees from the Copper Coffee Roasters team. Perfectly balanced - Not too bitter and not too sweet. Great black from an Aeropress or cafetière or with milk.
This coffee is absolutely delicious and our go to every morning. It has a really strong and interesting taste and a pleasant aftertaste.
We have been drinking it for several months and are unlikely to change any time soon!
Kenya AA Acacias Speciality Coffee Beans
Kenya is a country of great diversity, lying towards the East African coast and centrally located on the Equator, which splits the country into two almost equal parts. Kenya’s rich endowment of volcanic soils, high altitude, rainfall, and temperatures enables the country to produce high quality coffee beans that are rated as among the best in the world.
Acacias is a selection of the best coffee beans from across what used to be called the Central Province of Kenya. They are hand-picked when ripe, and come from a co-operative of 6 different small farms in the region.
Our Kenyan coffee beans have been lightly roasted to bring out their cupping notes of lime, butterscotch, and blackcurrant. This fruity coffee we think best suits a French Press, filter, V60, or Aeropress.
Packed and supplied in 100% biodegradable resealable bags and available for you to buy online as whole beans for you to grind yourself, we've also made our Kenyan Acacias coffee available to purchase as freshly ground coffee in coarse, medium or fine.
