Sweet and juicy! A bright, crisp acidity like blackcurrants and green apple, a full, juicy body and boozy finish that reminds us of amaretto.

Kiiriangoro is a small village located between Nairobi and Mount Kenya. On the eastern slopes of the Aberdare Range, the farmers benefit from very rich volcanic soil, perfectly suited to growing coffee.
The Thangaini Farmers Cooperative Society caters for around 500 smallholders who bring their harvested cherries to be processed in the traditional Kenyan way: sorted on patios, pulped, fermented and sun-dried on raised beds. The fermentation occurs in water tanks and typically takes place over night in the cooler temperatures. Sun drying of the parchment coffee on raised tables is done under careful supervision, covering the coffee whenever there is sign of rain or the sun’s rays are too harsh.
The coffee is regularly checked for moisture and once it reaches the 10-12% target level, it will be bagged up for transport to the dry mill.
This ensures an outstandingly sweet and juicy coffee.
The carbon footprint from this coffee's journey has been offset twice.
This includes boiling your kettle to brew it.
The packaging is biodegradable and recyclable.
Bike delivery or postage is included.
