The information our importer gave us for this coffee came in the form of this riveting book report:

The Kiandu factory (wet mill), is one of seven belonging to the Mutheka Farmers Cooperative Society. Farmers in Mutheka planted their coffee trees in the early 1950’s on the fertile western slopes of Mt. Kenya, in the Tetu division of the Nyeri district. This land represents some of the most highly prized terroir in the coffee world, due to its deep red volcanic soils. Approximately 1900 farmers contribute coffee to this wet mill, with the average farm containing only 300 trees on an acre of land. During harvest, coffee cherries are selectively picked and promptly delivered thereafter. The cherries are then sorted for ripeness, pulped, fermented, washed and sun-dried on raised tables. After drying is complete, the parchment is delivered to the Thika coffee dry-mill.

Which is all great, but doesn’t tell you a damn thing about how achingly delicious this coffee is and how incredibly special it is in the cup. Candied lemon, black cherry cola, muscat grape, caramel apple, bright but moody, just like the best of them. We have only a tiny amount to share with you so enjoy it while you can.
