Melon Rind, Lime Full-bodied
Variety: SL28, SL34
Crop Year: 2016/2017
Origin: Kirinyaga, Kenya
Producers: Kiangoi Smallholders
This coffee was specially grown by smallholders in Kirinyaga, Kenya. Members of the Rungeto Farmer's Cooperative Society, these farmers work together to pool resources and process their coffees with utmost care. Cherries are hand-sorted before pulping, and hand-sorted again into different quality groups for washing and drying. The process is detail-focused, but it turns out excellent coffee. These beans produce a delicate cup, equal parts sweet and tart. Sticky melon rind notes blend into sharper lime notes that echo back and forth with each sip. A full body makes this a substantial coffee that demands time to truly savor. The interplay of flavors in this cup is the sort of thing you can only see in truly premium coffees, and we're over the moon excited to get our hands on this lot to share with you!
