Passion Fruit, Bergamot, Floral
Variety: SL28, SL34
Origin: Nyeri, Kenya
Producers: Baragwi Cooperative Society
The Nyeri region in Kenya is a hotbed of specialty coffee production, so it only makes sense that we'd find multiple lots from the Karindundu factory that completely blew us away. This washed AA lot was processed and then dried on African beds over 21 days, painstakingly spread out and covered during peak sunlight each day to ensure even moisture content bean-to-bean. The small-holders from the Baragwi cooperative trust the Karindundu factory to bring the best out of their crop with their exacting processing standards, and we couldn't be happier with the result. Karindundu 256 is a lot that you simply don't want to miss.
The lead flavor at play in this cup is a strong passion fruit note, both citrusy and sharp with a touch of sweetness. A strong bergamot note is also present, lending the cup a sophisticated, almost tea-like quality. And we certainly can't forget the over-the-top florals that fill out the flavor profile, giving this coffee a great aroma and plenty of depth. It's a joy to taste coffee that's been so expertly grown and processed, we hope you take a moment to enjoy it!
