Getting product details...

A simply stunning light roasted Kenyan coffee for filter. Clean & bright with sweet complexity.

From Guy at Cast Iron Coffee Roasters:

An initial vanilla aroma leads to notes of lime & pink grapefruit with a lovely sweet finish. A wonderful complex coffee. This years Kenyans are tasting sublime !

Located near the town of Karatina in the Nyeri region of Kenya, the Ngungrui primary wet mill or ‘factory’ as they are known in Kenya, processes coffee for over 1000 small holder farmers predominantly from the Kikuyu tribe.

Typically a smallholding or ‘shamba’ is comprised of shade-grown coffee, a house, the family cow and a good variety of vegetables and fruit for the use of the family. The fertile red soil and ample rainfall provides excellent potential for production of quality coffee. The coffee will be hand picked by the farmer and delivered to the wet mill for processing. Before pulping, all cherries are hand selected and graded to ensure consistent quality with the ‘AA’ grade being the highest.

Recent amendments to the coffee laws in Kenya now allow direct trade with cooperatives and allow farmers to by pass the traditional auction system and sell direct bringing better returns to the smallholders.
