STORYarticle-shape

We finally brought back a Kenyan! We have thought about it and searched for a worthy Kenyan lot all year and this is the one we all have waited for. Classic flavors for a Third Wave Kenyan, with juicy notes like blackberry, orange, and lime followed up by a cane sugar and toffee finish. As the cup cools you will find a Vibrant but not sour acidty and a noticeable increase in the sweetness.

As the southwestern slopes of Mt. Kenya ease, their gentle decent is interrupted by a hill the Kikuyu people called Kia-Nyiri, which British colonists shorten to Nyeri by way of naming an outpost that was established on the spot, a natural crossroad for travel and trade in the early days of the 20th century. The commercial cultivation of coffee, new to Kenya, helped grow the outpost into a town.

Since 1999, nearby Muwa Estate has been processing its own coffee and that of other smallholders in a factory on the outskirts of Nyeri. Most of the farmers in the region grow SL28, SL34, Ruiru 11 and some Baitan in the red volcanic soil under the shade of macadamia and gravellea trees alongside tea, banana, and corn.
