Coffee Insight: Best Coffee Brands from Kenya

We love wine almost as much as we love coffee, which is why we’re obsessed with coffee brands from Kenya! Kenyan coffee beans have a bright, fruity acidity and subtle berry flavor that reminds us a lot of wine. So if you’re a Merlot lover like we are, you’ll absolutely love these coffee brands!

Kenyan coffee beans taste so unique because they’re grown at super high altitudes of around 6,000 feet. Coffee plants cultivated high up in the mountains grow slower than plants grown at lower elevations, which gives them more time to mature and develop the complex sugars that give coffee its amazing taste.

If you want gourmet beans with a bright, fruity flavor and a rich body but don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for them, check out these Kenyan coffees. They’re a lot cheaper than other types of gourmet coffees grown at high altitudes (we’re looking at you, Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee!), so you’ll be able to drink them every morning without breaking the bank.

Product Quick Compare

Volcanica is one of our favorite coffee brands. They only sell high quality, gourmet beans, like these awesome Kenya AA coffee beans. Every country has their own way of grading beans, and AA is considered to be one of the best, if not the best, grade of Kenyan coffee. These beans are grown at elevations of 6,600 feet, so they have a superior flavor and fragrant aroma.

These beans also have a bright, pleasantly acidic flavor with notes of citrus and berries. They have that delicious winey aftertaste that Kenyan beans are known around the world for too! You’ll love drinking this coffee after dinner for dessert, as an afternoon treat, or in the morning to put a little pep in your step. Its zingy, fruity flavor is perfect for any time of the day!

What We Liked

  • Incredible coffee with balanced caffeine
  • Flavor is best
  • The smell and color and better than other coffee brands

What We Didn't Like

  • Very acidic and tanin heavy

We love single-origin coffees, like this one, especially since it comes from Kenya! When the coffee beans all come from the same place, you’ll get to really taste the flavors that make the coffee beans from that region special. If these delicious Kenyan beans were mixed with ones from other countries, they might not have as much of that bright, fruity acidity and clean, winey finish that we love!

Another thing we love about these beans is that they get that premium AA rating. These beans are some of the best, highest quality Kenyan beans money can buy, so get your hands on them and pour some into your favorite coffee mug!

What We Liked

  • Big Flavor
  • Low Acidity
  • Very good caffeine content for energy buzz
  • Good price for the full pound bag

What We Didn't Like

  • Dry crumbly beans

This Kenyan coffee is unique because it has less acid than the others on this list. So if you don’t like acidic coffee, this is the coffee brand for you!

These beans are also roasted a little darker than some of the other beans on this list, which makes them easier on the stomach and brings out some special flavors in the beans.

Dark roasted beans contain higher amounts of a substance that prevents your stomach from producing hydrochloric acid. So even though dark roasts are richer, they’re actually easier on your stomach than lighter roasts. Isn’t that cool? Find out more about the different shades of coffees, here!

These beans also have flavors that are pretty special because they’re roasted a little darker. The roasting process brings out deeper flavors like black tea that you don’t usually taste in coffee from this region. You’ll also taste hints of peach and orange zest in your cup that will brighten up the deep black tea flavor. Sounds delicious, right?

What We Liked

  • Tastes wonderful
  • This coffee is fairly priced

What We Didn't Like

  • Weak packaging protection or poor quality of product packaging
  • Good brew but may not be as freshly roasted

Teasia washes their beans before they dry them, which gives them a clean, bright finish with pronounced acidity. This wet-processing method really highlights the natural acidity and fruitiness already present in the beans.

This brand has a bright fruit-forward flavor with lots of citrusy and winey notes. If you really want to taste the full flavor of Kenyan beans with amazing caffeine content, then pick up a bag of this medium roast!

What We Liked

  • Coffee beans have a bold and obsessive aroma
  • It's smoother and less acidic and bitter than a regular coffee bean
  • Excellent price

What We Didn't Like

  • Coffee not fresh roasted

Those are our four absolute favorite coffees from Kenya! Which brand are you most excited to try? We’re loving Teasia’s coffee!
