This AA Top quality coffee comes from Kiamaina washing station, located on the slopes of the Aberdares mountains in Nyeri, Kenya. Kiamaina is a memeber of the Kiama Farmer Cooperative Society which currently has 335 male members and 140 female members per factory, and collectively spans 130 hectares. The coffee is grown in the rich volcanic soil of the surrounding area, and is pulped, fermented, and fully washed before drying for 2-3 weeks to export moisture level. Coffees contributing to this lot are grown at 1700 masl and consist of SL-28, SL-34, and Ruiru 11 varieties.
All of the coffees coming out of the Nyeri region so far this season have been insane. Bright, big fruits, nice acidity, tangy, tart, and just super sweet. Just the way we like them. You already know that about us by now. This coffee is no different. We only bought a small quantity of this one in order to make room for a few others we have in the pipeline. The price of coffees coming out of Kenya right now, and in particular, the Nyeri region, have been pretty high. The demand for the coffee has gone up, and so has the quality, thus reflecting in the price.
