Keen is a micro-roastery based in Utrecht. Founded by Bonne & Rob, whose goal is to lift the coffee scene to an even higher level.
They are constantly searching for the best coffees and the most unique flavor profiles. They work directly with farmers, sampling their coffees through cuppings, selecting new crops, and supporting new, innovative projects to improve the quality of our coffees.
They roast on a Loring because it’s advanced technical design ensures maintaining consistently high quality with every batch. Roasting with the Loring is also more efficient and improves the longevity of the beans, meaning that coffees are at their best if brewed at least 10 days after they’re roasted.

Tasting Notes: This natural coffee is super clean and strikingly juicy. Ye Genet has floral and fruity tasting notes that fluctuate depending on the temperature at which it’s served.
