Kamuyu, Kenya

Kamuyu, Kenya

One of the best Kenyan coffees we’ve seen in years—it will fill the room with sweet, stonefruit aromas even before you manage to grind the coffee. Blackcurrant and elderberry give way to a shimmering aroma reminiscent of a youthful, red Pet Nat.

Simply the Ripest

The best Kenyan coffees are prized for their intense fruit flavors and sweetness. This is due not only to terroir and varietal, but also specifically to incredible fruit sorting. Only the ripest fruit is allowed and everything is hand-sorted. This coffee is truly and definitively ripe, and produces an enduring sweetness that is sure to impress even the most stubborn of old-school coffee palates.

Kamuyu, Kenya

Large and Mighty

This coffee comes to us from the Mutheka Co-op, which has produced some of the highest quality coffees in Kenya every year. The Co-op consists of more than 6,000 smallholder farmer-members, approximately 650 of whom use the Kaumuyu factory. These farmers have an average of 204 coffee trees each and generally farm food crops alongside their small coffee plots. The Cooperative puts a lot of focus on quality (and that meticulous sorting).
