PB - Peaberry beans. About 10 percent of
Kenyan coffee falls into this category.
AA - While it may be widely known as a type of
Kenya coffee, Kenya AA is actually a grade of coffee. Beans with a
screen size of 7.2 millimeters (approximately 18/64 of an inch and
often referred to as a screen size of 18) are assigned the grade
AA. This grade of coffee often receives a higher price than other
AB - Slightly smaller that AA, with a screen
size of 6.8 millimeters (or 17/64 of an inch). On average, 30% of
Kenyan coffee is assigned this grade.
E - Elephant beans. This category includes the
largest beans. Fairly rare in occurence, in some cases, this grade
will include peaberry beans.
C - Beans too small for the AB category,
including smaller peaberry beans.
TT - Smaller beans, normally separated from
more saleable AA, AB, and E grades.
T - The smallest grade of beans. Most of these
beans are actually broken pieces.
Buni - Unwashed coffee. This coffee went
unpicked from the tree and merely fell off after ripening. The
resulting coffee is generally sour in taste and therefore this
grade draws a low price. Approximately 7 percent of Kenyan coffee
receives this grade.
