Kenya Kiaga Fairtrade
This coffee is characterized by high acidity and ripe fruit flavors due to the combination of fertile soil, seasonal rainfall, and high altitude. Notes of dark chocolate paired with bold citrus flavors of mandarin orange, lemon and lime create a full body finish in your mouth.
This one is grown in the Kenyan highlands, between the Rutene and Ruarai rivers with cool temperatures and fertile central highlands. The farms fall between the Eastern end of the Great Rift valley and the Western slopes of Mt. Kenya, growing at about 6,230 feet in elevation.
The Kiaga is a wet processed bean, where fully ripe cherries are pulped and fermented for 1-2 days, washed and graded in water channels, then dried slowly over 2-3 weeks on raised beds until the moisture content is reduced 10%. The coffee is then delivered to the Othaya dry mill where it is rested in parchment for 3 weeks before being prepared, cleaned, and graded by bean size, before handpicked and bagged for shipping to us.
