“The Kenya AB coffee beans consist of both A and B coffee beans. The A grade is sorted using a 6.8 mm screen while the B grade is sorted using a 6.2 mm screen. These two types of beans, A and B, are mixed together to form the grade Kenya AB. This is a classic Kenya, with a palate highlighting the sweet side of the citrus spectrum.”
