about this coffee

With the snow-capped peaks of Mt Kenya in the backdrop, Kigwandi AA, our first coffee from Kenya, originates in the breathtaking southern Kenya county of Nyeri. Kigwandi is a product of Kigwandi Coffee Factor and, perhaps more significantly, KCF is an extension of Mutheka Farmer Cooperative, which brings the work of nearly 6,000 talented, small farmers together. Like the cooperative itself, Kigwandi AA is a dialogue of many voices coming together making something singular and beautiful. Consisting of SL14 and SL28, Kigwandi’s components were grown and tended to at more than 1,600 masl, in red volcanic soil. The cooperative, then, took the cherries through a fully washed process to produce a high-quality, complex coffee that Nyeri is renowned for, and Kenya, as a coffee origin, is cherished for. 

In your cup, expect big body, with notes reminding us of clementine flavour and acidity, pomegranate, green apple mid-palate, and a raspberry/blackcurrant finish that lingers. 

We are proud to offer our first Kenyan, a beautiful coffee which we only brought in a limited quantity, and that we will truly be roasting in small-batch.

Additional Information

Kenyan coffees tend to be less traceable in the traditional sense because all microlots have to go through auction. The exporter to the auction definitely has the information for each lot / farm, but they are usually reluctant to share it with buyers.

How to care for your coffee

Coffee is a natural product that degasses over time, losing flavour and complexity. Store your coffee in a cool, dry, dark place to optimize freshness.

Unexpected aspect & taste

When I opened the bag, I was surprised by the dark color of the beans. With the taste notes I was expecting something lighter in color. I am brewing it with a V60 and it is the same "darker" feel taste-wise. It is my first Kenyan coffee so that's probably why, but I still like it.
