  • Basil, black tea, brown sugar, dark chocolate, grapefruit, heavy, rosemary, savory and sweet.
  • This coffee roasts very typical for a Kenyan AA. The best notes come through on a slightly more developed roast so we recommend roasting at the darker end of light to the lighter end of medium to get the most pop out of the coffee.

Most smallholders intercrop coffee with other subsistence and cash crops including carrots, bananas and other fruit trees. Three permanent employees operate Mwiria Factory and hire an additional 30 people during the peak of the season. Smallholders selectively handpick only ripe cherry and deliver it to Mwiria Factory. At intake, the Cherry Clerk oversees meticulous visual sorting and floating, accepting only dense, ripe cherry.

Coffee great. Espresso is yummy as well. Kenya's always seem unique but kind of the same. I love them!
