This selection comes from small farms nestled in the heart of the country, just south of Mount Kenya, within the elevated plateaus of the Kiambu appellation. These plots boast altitudes reaching up to 1,900 meters.

The majority of Kenyan coffee producers are smallholders, with two-thirds owning approximately 300 shrubs on average, yielding between 1,000 and 1,500 kg of cherries annually. The remaining third consists of estate or micro-estate owners, all of whom collaborate within cooperative networks.

After harvesting their cherries, the producers deliver them to cooperatives for processing. Notably, Kenya boasts a distinct approach to preparing its green coffee, having inherited one of the most effective methods for cup quality enhancement from the British. This process, known as “Kenyan washing” or “double washing,” is considered a national specialty.

The unique preparation technique, coupled with specific local varieties (SL28, SL34, Batian, Ruiru 11) developed for their adaptability to the Kenyan terroir, has solidified the country’s position among the world’s most prestigious specialty coffee destinations. For years, Kenya has been producing coffees with a remarkable, bright acidity. Despite its undeniable advantages, the method does pose an environmental challenge regarding sustainable water management.

    Beautifully balanced and delicious taste

    Disclaimer: Not an expert.

    I drink a coffee a day using Aeropress and this coffee (fine ground) yielded the best cup of coffee so far. The taste is so comforting and balanced.

    If you prefer you coffee with less acidic notes you should give this one a try. Really pleased with it.

    Delicious coffee, fast delivery and nice packaging!

    Highly recommend giving it a try! Loved the sweetness and citric notes of the Kenya coffee. I am no coffee expert, but it is safe to say that this one is one of the best coffees I have tried – if not the best! Also really appreciated the handmade packaging with my name on it! 5 out of 5.
