COFFEE PROFILE

This espresso is a zippy, zesty ride that mellows out as the coffee glides over your young tongue and you are left with a sweet and floral linger. Bright flavours of slightly green pineapple and green apple are met with sencha tea and raw sugar.

SOURCING

For four years, ONA coffee has purchased the Rukira AB Washed. It stands out for us as a coffee that consistently delivers stunning citrus and stone fruit qualities anchored in a strong backbone of raw sugar cane styled sweetness. Its this richness in sweetness that allows the naturally bright acidity to sit more harmoniously in balance. This 2021 harvest is another pristine example that’s perfectly suited for espresso.

Origin

Nyeri Country, Central Region, Kenya

Rukira wet mill was first built in 1979 in the heart of Nyeri County in Central Kenya. It is situated in Rukira village, between the River Mumwe and the River Thuti. The wet mill processes cherries from more than 670 smallholder farmers in the surrounding Nyeri highlands, who combine their cherries at the mill.
