Coffee & Tea 21

Kenya AAA coffee

The Engineer | Aug 21, 2006 03:26 PM

My high school Latin Teacher, a former Jewish boy from Scarsdale turned Augustinian monk, smoked cigarettes and drank coffee all day- including (mainly) during classes.

He said he was drinking Kenya AAA. At the time (early 1980s) he got it in a coffee store in then Citicorp Center.

Does anyone know where to get this? The only place I've been to where they've even heard of it was Porto Rico Importing in the Village, but they didn't have any.

My teacher said that compared to triple A, the double A was "camel piss."
