Kenya is renowned in the world of Speciality coffee for its high quality berry like and floral coffees. This year we have selected a lot from Nyeri, a region which produces cups with sweet fruit character like apple and raisin, combined with subtle florals and notes of vanilla and mint. This lot from Kangocho has excellent structure from hot to cold, it's complex and is an exceptional example of coffee from Nyeri.
The Kangocho Factory is located near the town of Karatina, on the slopes of the Mount Kenya. The soil is rich in minerals. Combined with a constant rainfall every year providing perfect conditions to grow coffee.
Once the ripe cherries are pulped, the coffee is fermented for 12 hours before being washed in channels and separated by density. After separation, the coffee is being spread out on raised beds and dried for around 14 days. The thorough pre-cleaning and processing steps in Kenya are known to be one of the reasons they push such consistently excellent cups!
