Kenya has become the giant of African coffee production, ever since coffee made its way over the mountains from Ethiopia. Kenya AA is the largest bean grown in Kenya, and brews up a complex, fruity, light, and very bright cup. This is an exquisite coffee with an assertive, lively personality. Trust us, in coffee that’s a good thing.


Profile: Tangy aroma with hearty body, gusty wine-like acidity and citrus flavor.
Place: Mt. Kenya, Kenya
People: The coffee industry of Kenya is noted for its cooperative system of milling, marketing and auctioning coffee, as well as the high percentage of production from small farms. It is estimated that 6 million Kenyans are employed directly or indirectly in the coffee industry.
Process: A wash processed coffee. All Kenyan coffee is graded after it is milled. Grades are based on the screen size of the bean. Beans with a screen size of 17 or 18 (17/64 or 18/64 of an inch) are assigned the grade AA; these are generally the largest beans. It is important to note that size is only one of the many factors in determining high quality coffee.
Pairing: Blueberries, caramel and butter croissant.
  •   8 oz: Makes approximately 25 cups of coffee
  • 12 oz: Makes approximately 35-40 cups of coffee
  • 16 oz: Makes approximately 50 cups of coffee
  • 20 oz: Makes approximately 60-65 cups of coffee
  • 32 oz: Makes approximately 90-100 cups of coffee
BREWING TIP: Use cold, filtered water and a clean machine.
GRIND only as much as you need for one cup or one pot of coffee.
CHOOSE the correct grind. Fine for espresso, medium for automatic drip, coarse for French Press.
MEASURE ground coffee to taste. Start with two level tablespoons of ground coffee per six ounces of cold filtered or bottled water.
STORE in an airtight container to protect the flavor and aroma and ensure rich, fresh tasting coffee. Do not freeze or refrigerate.
We source our coffee from the best family coffee farms around the world and buy only the top 1% of Arabica Beans.

We hand roast our coffee daily in small batches to a traditional, smooth taste profile. This is the way we've done it since 1963, when we opened our first store in Brentwood, CA.

IMHO there are three things required for a great cup of coffee. They are: Top quality whole beans that are fresh and meet an individual's tastes, proper roasting of those beans, and knowing how to grind a brew the coffee. Without any one of these, a coffee lover or connoisseur's palate, cannot be pleased. Personally I prefer a medium flavored coffee, such as this Kenyan, a Colombian, and/or an Ethiopian. Because I think this Company (CBTL) roasts its beans beautifully and because I buy whole beans, grind them to the proper sized grind using a conical grinder, and use a French Press to brew them this CBTL Kenyan is one of my three favorite coffees. I've been buying these beans for a couple of years now and find the quality to be consistent; something very important, and because I believe I have my grinding and brewing process down to a fine science; I always get a beautiful cup of coffee.

      I'm 62 and only drank coffee for about 10yrs now.
      I went thru several brands since the one I've used is no longer being made. This is now my new favorite!

      We usually drink this coffee first thing in the morning. Was not impressed at first when strength was at one scoop per cup. However, the flavor arrived once the strength was increased by just adding an extra scoop. It is very good now and I plan on purchasing more.

            This was a perfect gift for my coffee loving friend Lara. She doesn't even live remotely near a CB&TL store. This was part of her birthday gift.

            This is my coffee of choice from the CB&TL.

            Has a unique mild taste but for the expensive price I Guess my expectations were higher. I PURCHASED WHOLE BEAN and can't say the coffee knocked my socks off. I'm kinda on the middle of the fence with this KENYAN coffee but would probably buy again.

              Kenyan coffee is as close to perfect as one can get. Your roast is the best I have ever had. Kenyan can be hit or miss, but yours is far exceeding any I've had previously. That being stated, I hope my next batches with you guys is at least as choice.

              I already have recommended you guys.
