The Kenya Othaya AA was carefully roasted for you by Entimos Coffee Roasters. This fully washed coffee was sourced from the growing region of Nyeri in Kenya and was grown by the Othaya Farmers Cooperative Society at 1,900 meters. The cup is bright and complex, with notes of dark fruits and chocolate.
The back and forth dance between acidity and sweetness in this cup offers an enjoyable complexity. It starts off with an interesting almost grain like flavor that is hard to define. It moves quickly into bright citrus, more grapefruit and orange than lemon, paired with dark chocolate. Both notes are strong, and at times, feel more at odds with one another than complementary. Overall, a delicious cup and a nice comparison to the Kaldi's Colombia Monserrate that I had last!
It was great! Floral and complex.
Heavier and dustier than coffee from neighboring Ethiopia.
Good coffee. We enjoyed the acidity that made the cup bright, but no specific notes really jumped out at us.

This coffee has nice fruit notes but the acidity is slightly higher than I normally like, so the chocolate notes don't come through very easily.
I couldn't make this one taste very good. It was drinkable, but I probably wouldn't want it again. I didn't really get notes of dark fruits, but I could see the chocolate flavor.
A bit too bright for my taste. Verging on sour when taken black. Needs a little sugar to round it out.
Acidic, not much flavor
Love it. Made for a consistently good, strong brew,
This coffee was also very good. I am definitely a fan of the fruity coffees. The chocolate was an interesting flavor note that initially I was unsure about, but have come to appreciate now and could see myself drinking a cup of this with family after a holiday dinner. Overall I appreciated that the coffee didnt linger after I was done drinking it. I would be interested in trying some coffees with similar flavor profiles and higher caffeine content for the next few shipments. Keep the good stuff coming!
Very much a muted or subdued version of the Costa Rican coffee from last month. Citrus with a little berry upfront then turns into dark chocolate but it's all subtle. No noticeable difference from the areo press vs. the french press.
Too fruity and bitter
Light-medium acidity in this full-bodied coffee with instant hints of blueberry and dark chocolate.
My favorite coffee so far from Mistobox. If you sent this every week, I'd be fine!
Grinding Kenya Othaya AA brings a smile to my face with the anticipation of brewing a perfect cup. The fruit and subtle chocolate with an above average acidity is pure joy in every cup. I used a coarse grind in a French Press this morning, sometimes I pour over. Perfection either way. Thank You Misobox.
Very good. More along the lines of the flavors I'm interested in. Slightly stronger roasty flavors than my ideal cup.
Grape skins, sweet fruits, easygoing. Not a popping AA but a really nice one.
Tasty, but overly acidic.
Enjoy the brightness of this one!
Flavor wise, this cup has come out the most clean across the board. Definitely get the notes of chocolate and a bit of I think either blueberry or raspberry. This one I have enjoyed the most so far for sure!
This was much better than anticipated! I found the perfect balance to be 19g of water/1g of coffee for a v60 pourover
Good. Nice - has more complexity than the Sumatra. However, the cup is not as bright as the description would suggest. Most often, the coffee just tastes flat.
Not our favorite - was a bit too bitter/sour.
Beans have nice smell. Smell during brewing (v60) is not pleasant. I had to increase my usual grind size to cut the burnt bitterness down. I don't really notice any fruity tasting notes; chocolate, maybe. It seems a little over-roasted.
This has been my favorite coffee that I've had so far. It makes a beautiful cup of coffee or espresso with milk or by itself. The aroma is intoxicating and the chocolate notes are nice and dark, but what I love most are the floral notes that I was not expecting to be there. The base is rich and flavorful and the finish is just bright enough to round it off. This one is a no-brainer for me: top tier.
Excellent coffee with a few more earthy notes for our taste but still an excellent coffee for pour over. Thank You Misto Box
It has a good flavor, but there isn't anything distintive. It's smooth, but kind of bland. Overall a good coffee, but nothing stands out.
Bold cup, good for the morning. Slightly astringent with a strong burnt flavor. Complexity in the initial taste, with a lingering bitter aftertaste
Fantastic flavor in V60!
I loved this one. The flavors were quite rich and tasted very fresh.
Charcoal scent to it right after finishing the pour over. Opened up to get much more of a cinnamon smell. Taste opens up as you go as well--dark chocolate with a bright but not overbearing acidity to it. A solid cup. The wife wasn't a big fan; much preferred the Equator. I agree the Equator was better overall flavor, but enjoyed this one.
Its a great cup of coffee that you can tell is freshly roasted, smells great, tastes great, but there is nothing that specifically stands out in this cup of coffee. Great if you want a smooth cup of good coffee.
Great balanced coffee without being boring
Lots of berry/dark fruit when black. Dark chocolate/brownie with milk. Very rich.
I enjoyed this one a lot. it had nice chocolatey notes with just a touch of fruit flavor
