Kenya Kiunyu OT-18

$24.75 + free shipping

Our fresh crop Kenya auctions have arrived! Kiunyu is the first release from the eight lots we purchased this year in Nairobi. We start with this arrogant, showy coffee from the Karithathi Cooperative. The Kiunyu AA tastes of brown sugar, vibrant blackberries, and fresh peach with a tactile of a juicy nectar. We really like bright and light Kenya coffees in the late summer heat.

Kiunyu is the first of two wet mills (factories) owned by the Karithathi Farmers Cooperative Society located in Kianyaga. The cooperative is mostly made of small-hold farmers with around 1200 current members. We cupped this lot at the Dormans Coffee cupping lab in Kenya this February and right away it jumped off the table. Incredible ripe fruits and complex sugars were apparent immediately. Pursuing this coffee during the Auction was an obvious choice. Now that the coffee has landed at the roastery, it cups exactly as we remember and validates all our anticipated excitement.
