About this coffee: Just like good parents, we don't like to claim favorites when it comes to our coffees. However, our head roaster (Michael) shamelessly raves about how much he loves this coffee. Whether you're a newbie to Kenyan coffees or if they have been a longtime staple for you, this Kenyan is definitely one that will give you that much needed citric sucker-punch while still being very approachable with heavy sweetness. Kenyan coffees are known for their tart acidity, ripe fruit, and rich sugar. This variety from the small region of Kirinyaga is known for coffees that show high complexity, refined acids, florals, and more delicate fruits.
Namesake Coffee - A micro roastery
We care deeply about a quality cup o' joe. We think coffee should be an experience of flavors, aroma, comfort - it should entice creativity, inspire momentum, engage memories, and encourage connection. Yes, we wax eloquent; it is only because we are passionate. We wish for you good conversations, and we hope our roast will someday grace your coffee cup.

About Namesake Coffee
Our Core Beliefs:
"We are enamored with all things coffee, artisan coffee & hand-pour enthusiasts. We are Dayton dwellers, mountain dreamers, Egyptian lovers. We are Jessica and Michael Beans of Namesake Coffee." #Beansroastingbeans
Jessica and Michael Beans met while living in Cairo, Egypt (an adorable story for another time). And you know how the saying goes... First comes love ...then comes marriage...then comes starting a coffee roasting company.
After moving from Denver, CO to Dayton, OH, the Beans decided to pursue their love of great coffee by starting a small-batch coffee roasting company and on March 15, 2016, Namesake Coffee Roasters, LLC. was born. Read more here.
Michael and Jessica are passionate about creating a company that promotes goodness within our world. This is why they chose to give a portion of their proceeds to nonprofits throughout their area. Coffee has and always will be about connection, so they use their company to connect with their local community.
