Kieni

Fresh and fruity with a great mouthfeel and juicy acidity. Aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and mandarin.

The Kieni wet mill in Kenya is part of the Mugaga society and managed by Charles Mwai Ihatu. 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 2015. We’ve paid 359% above market price ($ 6,21/lbs FOB)  for this outstanding quality. Kieni is now one of the highest paying cooparatives in Kenya.

At the mill the coffee is depulped and fermented in two sets of tanks with an intermediate washing after approximately 10 hours. It is then washed with clean water before it’s carefully dried on raised beds. We roast this coffee light to accentuate the flavours that are developed at the farm.
