Chemex metal filter: quite rich taste with discernible flavors and middle body (might be a bit silty), usually brewed for 1–2 cups
Rinse the filter with hot water
Put 30g (≈4,5 tbs) of coffee (medium coarse grind) in the filter (you can use more coffee if you want a more intense flavor)

about kenya COFFEE
The equator passes directly through this East African gem. Despite its tropical climate, Kenya experiences some nice cool-offs through the Indian Ocean and Lake Victoria. Flat savannahs home to an abundance of wildlife rise to central highlands, peaked by Mount Kenya at 5,199 m. It is here, where lush slopes are turned into fertile farmlands, creating ideal conditions for coffee. From the flat savannahs with their diverse flora and fauna rise the highlands, whose highest peak is Mount Kenya at 5,199 meters. Here, where the lush slopes give way to fertile farmland, the coffee plant thrives.

Today, agriculture is the major contributor to Kenya's GDP, among which coffee ranks third behind tea and horticultural produce. The total area under coffee cultivation in Kenya is estimated at 160,000 hectares.
Plantations make up about one-third of the area. However, the largest part of the land is used by smallholder farmers who assign themselves to cooperatives. Coffee is mostly sold via auctions that take place weekly during harvesting season. Pricing between buyer and seller is defined by cup quality and grading, depending on the bean size. Coffee beans screened above 17/18 are named «AA» and are the biggest of their kind. The added «Top» or «Plus» refers to the cup profile

DID YOU KNOW. Most farmers in Kenya are smallholders and typically produce enough coffee fruit for just a few 60 kg bags.
