Perhaps not everyone knows that AA is not a variety of Arabica, but the measure of the largest coffee beans in Kenya (and East Africa), a measure that often corresponds to the best quality.
The most used variety for quality Kenyan coffees is Blue Mountain, the hybrid developed in the Jamaican mountains.
Ripe cherries are handpicked with the handpicking method and brought to the processing center "stewed". Here the grains are stripped, washed and left to dry in the sun on suspended racks. The beans are then taken to the dry processing center to be shelled and classified (based on the sieve and densimetric) and then sent to the commercial warehouses for division into lots and auctioning.
For this evaluation, the coffee was extracted into espresso at 93 ° with an extraction of 25 ml in 25 seconds. The degassing of the coffee was 48 hours.
The cream is a nice hazelnut with marked nuances. The aromas are decidedly spicy, with notes of cardamom, nutmeg and tobacco. The body is light but not inconsistent, it has a decidedly marked acidity, and a light and balanced sweet-bitter ratio.

The Caffèlab project was born as a collective, a group of people with different skills, different past and present but the same passion: quality coffee.
The world of coffee is changing. In recent years we have been witnessing a strong cultural evolution of coffee. Some consumers are beginning to realize that this product can be a universe of varieties and aromas and that a conscious taste can give us extraordinary sensations.
We wanted to make our blends through experimentation, because looking for quality does not mean fossilizing on a taste, but going in search of it. We have also started to use different extraction methods, because coffee is not just about espresso. Finally, we understood that roasting can totally change the taste of a coffee and that you can also experiment by roasting your own coffee, at home, at different levels, with different profiles.
This is why we have created Caffèlab: to allow you to create your own personalized coffee blend, through our configurator, making available the best single origins and professional equipment.
