Getting product details...

Bold blackcurrant and grapefruit flavours combine with a dense syrup like sweetness and sparkling complex acidity in a classic representation of Kenyan coffee. Delicious.

From Artisan Roast:

Ndimaini factory is one of five secondary processing units that form the larger Gikanda FCS Society based out of Karatina town, right in the heart of the quality Nyeri coffee growing area. The farmer small holdings that supply this factory are spread around the town of Karatina in east Marithra, which nestles between the imposing Mount Kenya and bustling regional centre of Nyeri. As is common throughout Kenya, most producers in the co-operative own a few hundred coffee trees and they deliver ripe red cherry from these trees into a central co-operative washing station, like Ndimaini, for further processing.

This selection is a peaberry, and this round bean often has a more pronouced sweetness when compared to more conventional grades of coffee. Peaberries are essentially an aborted seed on the coffee tree but often yield a cup profile with more balance than the standard grades. This is particularly true of Kenya where the higher perceived sweetness brings the acidity into harmony. This coffee from Ndimia-imi is no exception and its classic combination of dominant grapefruit, and underlying brown sugar flavour is balanced so well with intense blackcurrant flavours.

We have roasted this coffee light to preserve the intense citric, apple like and phosphoric acidity. Flavours are many - for us the stand out ones are fresh zesty grapefruits, blackcurrant, cranberry and a sweet, syrupy melon finish. A viscous caramel like flavour runs through this coffee too bringing a delicious sweetness to balance the acidity.

When do we roast your coffee?

We roast at least every Monday and Wednesday (roasting days). Our cut off for planning orders for roasting is 2pm on a roasting date. If an order is received after this cut off it will be prioritised on the next roasting day. Most items will be dispatched the next day (Tuesday and Thursday). If we cannot deliver the goods within this time we will tell you immediately and agree on another time for delivery. If we cannot agree on another time, we will offer you a refund. We use a range of different roaster sizes so we can batch roast exactly what we need for that day. This means that no coffee will leave our roastery older than the previous working day.

Delivery Method

We send your coffee by Royal Mail 1st Class post, which aims to deliver within 1 working day. This is not a guarantee but an aim. Royal Mail will not class an item as lost or missing for 15 working days. Please get in touch if you have not received your order within 7 working days of dispatch.
