This medium mild roast is ideal for filter and cafetieres. Kenya was a British colony before independence and for many English people Kenyan coffee is still the best. It certainly has more flavor than most origins and is in demand by corporate roasters to spice up blends. It is therefore more expensive on the general global coffee market. The extra strength means that it works to give a flavorsome cup even on a mild roast. The first coffee ever sold by Coffee Plant was a small batch import made in 1983 and roasted on the corner of Portobello Road and Blenheim Crescent on a hand made roaster

Did you know our ordering system allows you to create your own blends? Order each component of the blend separately and than tell us what do do in the special information box. We can then blend it and if required grind it, saving you a potentially messy kitchen worktop
Blending tip: when deciding on a mixed roast blend it usually works better to have more of the milder roast, less of the stronger.
Blending tip: even the strongest roast can be mixed with a normal tasting blend – so long as you use very little. Start by trying one part in four.
