Our Lenana AA Plus is a blend of AA screen size coffees from traceable sources, both estates and cooperatives, and prepared by Taylor Winch (Coffee) Ltd in Kenya. The coffee was grown by smallholders - with an average of 200 trees each - who delivered their freshly picked ripe cherries to cooperative wet mills. The Lenana AA Plus was disc pulped, fully fermented and washed, sundried on elevated drying tables. Consolidated parchment volumes were then delivered to dry mills where the parchment was hulled, graded according to size and density, and warehoused and warranted for sale.

We are happy to announce a portion of the proceeds from this coffee supports Therapists Beyond Borders, a nonprofit whose mission is to empower communities that care for people with disabilities around the world through training programs in physical, occupational, and speech therapy. They are currently co-developing therapy training programs for both healthcare providers and caregivers with their partners in Kenya.

 

*Our preferred brewing method for this coffee is Chemex with a 1:12.5 coffee to water ratio
