Kenyan coffee beans are among the most sought-after beans in the specialty coffee market. It’s not hard to see why. Coffees in Kenya are grown in high altitudes and in volcanic, nutrient-rich soil. Moreover, they receive even rainfall throughout the year and undergo a double-washing process that ensures their high quality. These factors contribute to the bright and clean fruitiness that Kenyan coffee beans are known for.

However, no matter how good the coffee beans are, the roasting process can change them – for better or for worse. That’s why roasting is an essential process. It can unlock the bean’s potential to create a fantastic brew, or it can burn all its flavors away.

This brings us to our question: What is the best roast for Kenyan coffee beans?

FACTORS AT PLAY FOR ROASTING KENYAN COFFEE BEANS

Before we determine the best roast for Kenyan coffee beans, let’s look at the factors that affect roast quality.

The most important factor to consider is the coffee grade. For example, a Kenyan AA grade coffee is large and dense and may need more time and heat while roasting than a Kenyan AB grade.

The other aspect is how the bean was processed. Washed coffee beans usually taste differently from beans that have gone through other processing methods such as the natural process.

So, what then is the best roast for coffee beans from Kenya?
