Kenya Kiaga AB, Washed

ESPRESSO

‘The Othaya Farmers’ Cooperative has a partnership of around 550 farmers from across Neyri Country in Central Kenya. Most of the coffee trees grown in this area mature and develop slowly, producing extra-hard beans. The Kiaga Wet Mill is located between the Rutene and Ruarai rivers, east of the Aberdare ranges and on the slopes of Mount Kenya.

A lime-like citrus is accompanied by qualities of red berries and a brown sugar sweetness in this washed lot from Kenya.
