Kieni

Kenya

Kieni, kenya

Fresh and fruity with a great mouthfeel and juicy acidity. Rhubarb, blackberry, gooseberry and rosehips in the aroma.

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 Kariuki. 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 2016. We paid 285% above market price ($6.30 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.
