Rob Says: Very small lot from Kiambu. It’s a while ago we had a coffee from this region. Although Kiambu is only 100 km away from Nyeri the taste profile is mostly so different you can taste it. While Nyeri is more acidic and fruity, the Kiambu beans taste more like ripe fruit and the body is bigger, with sweet notes and sometimes a touch of cinnamon.

This coffee is bought directly via the Nairobi auction system. I have to admit that’s it is rare to buy this type of coffee with such a well known name. Probably it was possible because of the (small) size of the lot.

So brew this one carefully and enjoy as much as you can.

THIS ONE SHOULD BE FINISH THE 2017 CROP SEASON AND BE ROASTED IN APRIL 2018
