Kenya occupies a special place in the heart of gourmet coffee lovers the world over. Straddling the equator, production areas benefit from high altitudes and rich volcanic soils, and are blessed with a coffee culture and system which promotes and rewards quality. Mt. Kenya, at 5,200m is the second highest peak on the continent. It dominates the coffee landscape and remains a sacred place for the Kikuyu tribe living on its slopes. Smallholders, who account for 60% of total production, are organised into cooperatives, each with one or more wet mills, or ‘factories’. The strong social structure built around these factories provides for vibrant rural coffee communities where generations of farmers uphold traditional values and practices. Full bodied, with juicy currants and cordial. Very well balanced acidity with chocolate notes in its lovely lingering aftertaste.
