Example: Filter: 15g - 250ml // Espresso: 18g - 40.5ml
This outstanding coffee from the Kianderi washing station, located in the Nyeri region, was harvested in late 2016 and selected by us during a blind cupping in Nairobi last December. This region, located on the banks of Mount Kenya, is famous for the coffee producing qualities of its incredibly rich volcanic soil.
The Kianderi washing station is owned by the Inoi co-operative and takes coffee from around 500 smallholdings. All the coffee is harvested from the varietals SL28, SL34, Ruiru and Batian, with most farmers producing yields of 10-15kg per tree. On the day of delivery the coffee is pulped and then fermented dry (using no water unlike the wet fermentation process). After fermentation the coffee is washed using traditional grading channels which filter away any defective or unripe beans. The best parchment is then dried separately and covered during the midday sun.
We have bought several coffees from Kenya this year including both AA and AB lots from Kianderi, and both of these are exclusive to us.
