Growers Alliance Coffee Organic Kenya Whole Bean Coffee -- 12 oz

Fair Trade Certified. Gourmet Quality. Shade Grown. Award Winning. 100% Arabica Beans. Growers Alliance Coffee. Growers Alliance Coffee is passionately committed to brining you the finest gourmet coffees from the best specialty coffee producing countries across the globe. We do not blend our coffees and our 100% exceptional arabica beans are masterfully roasted to be enjoyed as Single Origin Coffees. This helps to maintain enhance and identify the particular taste profile for each single coffee growing country.  . Growers Alliance Coffee Company was founded by Martin Kabaki and Purity Gikunju who grew up on coffee farms in Kenya. After moving to live in the United States they were shocked to see $4 latte cups while coffee growers back in their Kenyan village earn a measly 15 cents for a whole pound of their harvested green coffee beans!  . Martin and purity immediately decided to start their own coffee company in Jacksonville Florida with a mission to cut out the several unnecessary middlemen. Their goal is to help empower the poor coffee growers with better prices for their coffee crop and better living standards. We specialize in the best gourmet USDA Organic and Fair Trade certified coffees in the world.

Great Kenyan Coffee
 June 24, 2014
"Kenyan coffee is my absolute favorite, but it's very difficult to find an organic brand, so I was thrilled to finally see one being offered here and couldn't wait to try it. I don't know what the reviewer referring to the dusty beans meant. Perhaps they got their hands on an off batch, as the batch I received was very clean and the coffee tasted deep and rich and distinctively Kenyan.
All in all, I'm most pleased to have finally found an organic Kenyan coffee and hope that Vitacost will continue to carry it for a long time to come."

decent coffee
 June 15, 2014
"This coffee has a simple earthy flavor to it. It's very smooth and the least 'bitter' coffee I have ever had. Not sure what the other reviewer meant by 'dusty'. It's a decent coffee - not amazing, not bad. I usually prefer a more complex flavor."

"The beans arrived very dusty and dried-out looking. The coffee tasted the same way."
