Our second Kenyan microlot of 2020 was grown by a collective of 360 small farmers of the Othaya Farmers Collective Society in Nyeri. Nyeri is one of the best known regions for quality. In Kenya coffee is traded based on quality, and high premiums are paid for good coffee, which means well-endowed counties like Nyeri achieve very high average prices year after year, and the smallholders here with a few hundred trees at the most, along with additional employment or land uses in the highlands, are widely considered to be middle class.

This peaberry lot from the Thuti factory is an exceptional example of what we look for in Kenyan peaberry coffee. This punchy little bean packs flavor in so densely that it explodes (figuratively speaking, don't worry)  in the cup with aromas, textures, and flavors. Rich chocolate, fruit, and spice notes intermingle very playfully. The acidity is intense, but balanced, like a condensed burst of fruitiness, quite similar to a kumquat. Some may even say it's a bit like Thuti-frutti (sorry, couldn't resist). 

If you are a Kenyan coffee fan, look no further. 

Don't own a grinder? Don't own a good grinder? Not a problem, let us expertly grind the coffee for you depending on the method with which you brew. We roast, grind and package your coffee to order, so it gets to you just a few days after roasting. We do recommend to consume pre-ground coffee within 2 weeks after opening to experience maximum freshness of flavor.
