Here we have our third and last Kenya of the season! It comes from the Kiangothe Factory who works with several small farmers who are located in the southern foothills of Mt. Kenya. The rich, red volcanic soil and the high altitude provide the ideal conditions for cultivating flavour dense and ripe red cherries.
All the participating smallholders sort out the unripe cherries by hand and deliver their best quality to one of the factories. At the factory the cherries are hand sorted again to make sure only the best cherries will go into process. The coffee is traditionally processed; pulped, dry fermented, washed and sundried in 12 to 20 days on African dry-beds.
This Kenya in particular caught our interest because of its beautiful acidic punch which is followed by complex layers of ripe berries and sugary sweetness. You can expect a true representation of the ‘’old skool’’ Kenya flavours.
Since the bean size is rather large, we roast this coffee with a good amount of energy until you will taste tons of sweetness without compromising on acidity.
