About this coffee
NOTES: SPARKLING BRIGHT ACIDITY, LIME CITRUS, RICH BLACKCURRANTS, BLACKBERRY NOTES WITH A GREEN APPLE AROMA AND MALTY CARAMEL FINISH.
Producer Nganga Githei and his daughter in law manage Kamugiri Estate. Their careful oversight, combined with the estate’s impressive high altitude of 2,000 meters above sea level produces a sweet and full bodied coffee whose floral and blackcurrant notes are typical of the classic Kenyan profile.
Coffees from Kiambu are most often named for the areas within the region–i.e. Thika, Limuru, Ruiru, Kamugiri. Much of Kiambu is composed of large estates with an eye to quantity production. That said, small holders and their cooperative organizations are alive and well, offering growers a better option than selling their cherries through the large operations. Instead, they bring them to their own mills for processing, and are able to obtain a fair price for them at auction.
