Kirinyaga, Kenya Coffee Known For Unique Flavor And High Sugar Concentration
Consumption of coffee grown in Africa is a new culture that has recently been brewing up a storm in America. Available data show that among coffee drinkers, the average consumption in the United States is 3.1 cups of coffee per day.
It shouldn’t be a surprise, therefore that coffee beans are in high demand in the American market and coffee brands are continuously striving to surpass their mark in a competitive market. At African Coffee Club, our goal is to take you-the coffee lover, to an African coffee safari where you will enjoy the taste of coffee grown in the rich and volcanic soil of Africa. We aspire to tell the tasty African story and history through coffee
This month, our safari takes coffee lovers to Kirinyaga, Kenya for a medium roast whole bean coffee. Kirinyaga coffee does well as a medium roast as this allows its delicate qualities to shine and enhance their acidity.
Kirinyaga coffee stands out because of its diminutive peaberry-where the coffee cherry produces one plump, round bean instead of two halves-which doubles the flavor and sugar of the seed.
And talking about coffee and health benefits, a new research has established that drinking coffee can activate the body’s fat-fighting defenses. This new research is a discovery that could have potentially significant implications in the battle against obesity and diabetes. According to researchers at the University of Nottingham, coffee may help stimulate our brown fat reserves, also known as brown adipose tissue, which plays a key role in how quickly we can burn calories.
