Karimikui Kenya

Coffee Story

Our Karimikui Kenya is sourced from family-owned farms located in the fertile foothills of Mount Kenya. Farmers, members of the Rungeto Farmers Cooperative Society, bring their ripe cherry to the Karimikui Factory (mill) in Kirinyaga County, Kenya for processing. Farmer plots are so small that they are measured by the number of trees, not the area of the land. The Rungeto Farmers Cooperative Society, established in 1953, has deservedly earned a great reputation for quality and consistency.

Coffee Review

94 pts      Aroma: 9     Acidity: 9   Body: 9    Flavor: 9    Aftertaste: 8

Blind Assessment: Boldy sweet-tart, savory-edged. Dark chocolate, gooseberry, honey, lilac, hazelnut butter in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with bright, juicy acidity; crisp, lively mouthfeel. The resonant finish leads with tart fruit notes in the short resolving to honey-toned florals in the long, all enveloped in dark chocolate.

The Bottom Line: A big, juicy Kenya with sweet-tart fruit notes and a dark chocolate base, classic in its balance of sweet and savory impulses.
