Ah, Umm-
I got this particular 2# from the NC competition on 21 Jan 05. First of a
group of three Africans I got for comparison. Kenya shines. This Kenya glow=
s
.
After 8 hours in the Thermos air pot, I just buzzed a covered cup for 22
seconds in the micro. Wow! What a sweet, fruity woody smell when I opened
the door. Brewed at 1:9, it's crazy good in the cup.
Kenya AA was the very first coffee I roasted in a Melitta AromaRoast almost
30 years ago. The resulting brew was more interesting than Boyer's fresh
whole bean coffee. [Bill sold me the green coffee and the little Melitta]
The roasting fragrance would drift through the building where I had my shop
set up.
No problem with a carafe sitting too long with coffee in it, even though I
had a 3 station hotel and restaurant drip coffee maker. People in the
[Gardner Denver] building helped me keep it fresh when I'd get back to the
shop!
Why did it never occur to me to expand things and set up the York Street
coffee laboratory? Dum dee dum dumb!  I turned my back on many
opportunities...
Don't turn away from Kenya AA. This green coffee has been in the ZipLoc bag
almost two years. The pantry is a little cooler than room temperature and
dark all year long.
Cheers -RayO, aka Opa!
