We’ve explored several coffee origins around the world but Kenya remains one of our favourites. Producing some of the world’s most exotic tasting coffees, Kenyan lots are renowned for their exhilarating acidity, bright and clear floral and fruit notes with juicy body and pleasant nutty aftertastes. These beans are generally super-dense packing explosive flavours that are easy to bring out in your cup without the need for complex brewing recipes.

Kenya yields a biennial crop with the primary harvest between October and December and the second harvest between June and August. Our lot from the Kiri Washing Station in the Kirinyaga County was harvested in the primary season and arrived in India in February. We have spent over a month profiling it to ensure we deliver a coffee to you that is delicious, juicy, packed with exotic flavours and ready to make your palate explode. Manual brewing methods are best suited for this filter roast with our suggestions being Kalita, V60, Chemex and Aeropress. The coffee will also work as an espresso if you are someone who likes sparkling acidity and tangy, fruity and strong winey notes in your shot (make sure you experiment with grind size as this is a filter roast and it will require some dial-in patience to achieve the ideal shot).

Enjoy notes of blueberries and concord grapes bouncing of a juicy, lingering texture to end with an anti-climactic walnut finish. This coffee is made for all varieties of coffee enthusiasts with diverse preferences and is something you should definitely not miss. Slurp away!
