You can't beat a washed Kenyan coffee, and when we find one as good as Karindundu 112, we jump at the chance to share it with the club. Small-holder members of the Baragwi cooperative deliver their cherry crop to the Kanrindundu factory in Nyeri, where the cherries are sorted and processed. Since there are many coffee producers in the region, the Karindundu factory produces many lots at different grades and sizes, but we fell in love with this washed AA lot in particular thanks to its great balance of delicate flavors.

Karindundu 112 is a bright coffee, with a strong lime acidity giving the cup a nice kick. A smooth honey sweetness provides a counterpoint to the acidity, while a light floral jasmine note gives the cup a depth and nuance that makes every sip an adventure. Kenya is arguably the best in the world when it comes to washed coffees, and lots like Karindundu 112 contribute to that reputation. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Loved it!

Don’t have time for a long review, but I love coffee from Kenya. This one is no exception!

Fruity and complex.

Really solid cup. Unfortunately I have to blame my grinder for not getting all the lime notes I could out of the coffee. The lime notes in a whole bean were quite strong but got a little lost during brewing. Once I dialed in my method, however, I was able to get a relatively complex cup with some evolution in taste and a very smooth finish. Just wish I was able to extract a little more lime on the front.

Too acidic for my taste

Make sure you don't brew too long. It becomes very acidic. Sweet after taste. I wish jasmine was bit stronger. I drank this on pour over couple times and will try cold brew tomorrow morning. We will see if I taste anything different.
