Intense sweetness and juicy acidity. Rich and mouthwatering with a complex aroma of blackberry, rhubarb and vanilla.
Situated in the heart of Kenya, between Mount Kenya and the Aberdare mountain range, the land around Kieni is lushy green with deep red soil beneath.
The Kieni wet mill is part of the Mugaga society and managed by Josphat Muriuki. We’ve visited and bought from them every year since 2010 and continue to be impressed with their very high quality. This lot is of SL28 and SL34 varieties and was harvested in November 2017. We paid 327% above market price ($6.03 USD/lbs FOB) for the excellent quality that has made the Kieni one of the highest paid cooperatives in Kenya.
We roast this coffee light to accentuate the flavours that are developed on the farm.
