This variety of Kenyan coffee served at Mockingbird Hill in Washington D.C. puts a spin on the way the caffeinated beverage is typically served. Aside from soda water being a main ingredient, the 'Kenya Cola' mainly gets its name from phosphoric acid, which is one of the most essential acidic flavors found in Coca-Cola. In addition to pairing this Kenyan coffee with fizzy soda water, other key components include sugar, ice and three kinds of bitters: tiki, Spanish and black walnut.

The Kenya Cola is a non-alcoholic mixed coffee drink that's one of many from Mockingbird Hill's menu. Other inspiring varieties include the Ethiopian Addis Tonic and the White Columbian.

Drinks at Mockingbird Hill are meant to be consumed on-site, a concept meant to bring consumers out of old habits that inhibit enjoyment in the present moment.
