Finally, our favourite time of the year has arrived and a new crop of Kenyans are here to tantalize our taste buds! With its big juicy body, bright acidity and fruit-forward flavours, Kenyan coffee just hits different.
This coffee is sourced from family owned farms organized around the Muthuaini Factory (wet mill) in Nyeri County, Kenya. The Mutheka Farmers Co-operative Society manages the Muthuaini Factory, which processes cherry from members who generally cultivate around 200 coffee trees on half-acre plots. Small plots give these producers more control to strategically pick and deliver only the ripest cherry to the factory. Additional cherry sorting is also done at the factory before the coffee is depulped, fermented and washed. After the coffee is washed, it’s soaked in fresh water for long periods of time to solidify the hallmark Kenyan profiles.
Muthua-ini is a Kikuyu name for “a place with many ants”, this place was famous of the ants which destroyed almost everything including the plantation of sugarcanes and had built very long ant hills which were visible from a far distance.
In this particular coffee, you can expect vibrant and juicy flavours in abundance! Ripe Black Cherry and Blackberry flavours are the first thing that you'll notice. All of this is held together with a delightful malic and oxalic acidity, Rhubarb and a slight underlying floral note. Altogether this fruit medley is a delight to behold and a perfect example of why we love Kenyan coffee so much.
