This coffee from Karimikui is a great example of the storied past and the future potential that exists in Kenya.
The cup is sweet, balanced, and lush. The aromatics are floral and fresh, with flavors of mixed stone fruits; most notably nectarine. The finish is lingering and clean and reminiscent of spring flowers. Truly a remarkable and complex cup.
INGREDIENTS: 100% Arabica Coffee Beans

Farmers deliver cherry throughout the harvest season where it is wet milled and then dried by the Karimukui factory.
This is a fully washed coffee. It is dried on raised beds and is scrupulously sorted. It has an AA designation, meaning the bean size is screened somewhat smaller. However, the smaller size does not translate to smaller flavor!
