About the farm
This is the second year that we're able to work with this phenomenal selection from the Kainamui washing station. There are many excellent characteristics of this coffee, however it is most commonly regarded for its distinct floral and more delicate flavour expression whilst still retaining a distinctive acidity.
The cherries, collected from approximately 985 members of the New Ngariama Farmer Cooperative, are delivered to the Kainamui Factory to be sorted by maturity and quality grouping before pulping and washing. The coffee receives between 24 and 48 hours of fermentation, dependant on density, before drying on raised beds for and average duration of 10 days. This particular lot has been sorted and milled, graded AA by bean size and density.
About the coffee
We're really excited to be working with this coffee for the second year running. It's an incredible AA selection, and as our second Kenyan release this year it's keeping our offer list fresh and bright. You can expect to find notes of red apple and jasmine, with more delicate notes of gooseberry.
