Takin' ya to the Kenya flavor nation-station. Kenya typically has a thick mouthfeel and this specimen does not disappoint! Orange, cranberry, and milk chocolate for days, friend. Think of Thanksgiving cranberry chutney, but not done up by your crazy aunt Sue who adds too much booze to it. Brew up a cup, slick!
This coffee was sourced from Royal Coffee.
Perched high up in the southern foothills of Mount Kenya on rich red volcanic soil, the growing areas surrounding the Karimikui factory are ideal for producing some of the finest Kenyan coffee. Farmers in these fertile foothills who typically cultivate around 250 coffee trees on half-acre plots have been delivering cherry to the Karimikui factory since it first opened in 1966.
Rungeto has focused on quality processing and meticulous attention to detail, garnering it a reputation for amazing coffee traceable to some of the cleanest and best organized factories in Kenya. At the Karimikui factory only the ripest cherries are delivered, and additional hand sorting and floating are done to remove less dense and damaged beans before the coffee is depulped, fermented and washed. After the coffee is washed, it’s soaked in fresh water for long periods of time to solidify the hallmark Kenyan profiles
