  • 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.

Very good, great experience

Over all great experience with my order. I can see that they cared, the packages were all pound bags and all compostable (which was important). If there was a challenge is that couple of bags were not sealed correctly so were open. I hope to use the open bags soon so that they are not exposed to the element for too long

Hello Amit,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback with us.

Your note about the improperly sealed bags has been discussed. We will take greater care to ensure that each bag is properly sealed before shipping. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We hope you enjoy the coffee!

A little weak. My wife likes it. I will look for espresso in the future orders. Recommendations?

Hey Keith,

Thanks for sharing your feedback. If you like more chocolate-forward espresso I would recommend the Guatemalan coffee from Chq'Ul in Huehuetenango or the semi-wash bourbon from Finca Colomba in El Salvador. If you like more syrupy and fruity espresso then definitely check out the Guji Gigesa Natural from Ethiopia or the natural processed dwarf caturra from Hacienda Sonora in Costa Rica.

Feel free to reach out to us at for links or more recommendations!

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