Clifton Coffee - Kenya: Chania Estate (Natural) - Limited Release

Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

This coffee is somewhat of a rockstar of the Kenyan specialty world and we’re delighted to welcome it back to our roastery for the 2nd year. It shows incredible depth of flavour with pungent tropical fruit notes, and long strawberry finish. We’ve only managed to get 60 kilos so its not going to hang around long!
This unique varietal is a look back into the past. French Mission is an original Bourbon varietal that was introduced by French Missionaries in the late 1800's. Over 76 centimeters of rain a year, combined with the deep red volcanic soil and temperatures of 22 to 28 degrees Celsius, come together to provide the perfect conditions for this coffee to express its genetic treasures.

The Harries family has been growing coffee for almost a century. The family has donated more than 50 acres of land to the Thika Municipal Council and co-founded the Wabeni Technical Institute that seeks to teach underprivileged children practical skills that can help them make a living.
