Kenyan coffee brands ranked among best in the world

Kabare AA took 4th spot with a score of 97 points out of 100

Kabare AA, Riakiberu AB and the Kenya Baragu took 4th,20th and 25th positions respectively in the review that ranks the most exciting coffees from the thousands they cupped over the course of the past year.

Kabare AA, produced by the Kabare farmers’ cooperative society in Kirinyaga, had a score of 97 points out of 100 at an estimated price of $14.50/12 ounces.

AA is the highest grade of Kenya coffee based on bean size and freedom from physical imperfections.

Riakiberu AB, produced by Kamacharia farmers’ cooperative society in Murang’a, scooped 95 points whereas Kenya Baragu scored 94 points.

The famed Kenya coffee auction system and its participating cooperatives continue to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees.

Coffee Review has for the past five years released its top 30 list of the world's best coffee with an aim of celebrating coffee roasters, farmers and mill-owners who produce coffee of high quality and distinctive character.

“Coffee Review’s goal, as always, is to celebrate coffee roasters, farmers and mill-owners who make an extra effort to produce coffees that are not only superb in quality but also distinctive in character,” said the review team.

“In particular, we want to honour the dedication of coffee producers large and small who with the support of their roaster partners are crafting a range of sensory excellence and diversity that has never existed before in the history of the beverage.”

Six of the top 30 selections were produced from trees of the Gesha variety.

Likewise, 24 of the coffees on the top 30 list were roasted by companies in the United States, including roasters in 11 US states.

Other origins with multiple coffees on the list are Colombia (3), Ethiopia (3), Kenya (3), Sumatra (2), Hawaii (2), Rwanda (2), and El Salvador (2).
