This is our second coffee from Kenya this season. We simply just couldn’t pick one out of all the beautiful coffees this country had to offer this!
The coffee is grown by several small holders from the Nyeri region. Nyeri is located on the slopes of Mount Kenya and together with the neighbouring region Kirinyaga it’s known for coffees with most intense, complex and flavour dense cup profiles world wide.
The ripe cherries are collected by the Mutheka Farmers Cooperative Society. This society helps farmers to produce better coffees by educating them through the whole coffee production process and pre-financing their needs to accomplish their goals. At their washing station the coffee is traditionally processed; pulped, dry fermented, washed and sundried in 12 to 20 days on African dry-beds.
As you might have noticed this coffee is classified as an AB, which refers to the size of the bean. AA is the biggest size, followed by AB and PB, all with their own characteristics. AB is generally more acidic, which is exactly the reason we picked this coffee.
Kaiguri AB will give you a huge punch of mouth-watering acidity, followed by intense sweetness and tons of juiciness.
