Kenya Kirinyaga, 1 lb (16 oz)
Kirinyaga County sits at the foothills of Mount Kenya, some 112km from Nairobi. Kirinyaga County is named after Mount Kenya, which was originally known as Kirinyaga by the local communities, meaning the crest of whiteness, synonymous with its snowcapped peaks. This coffee is a blend of various cooperatives in the region that deliver cherry to the wet mill the same day that it is picked. Timely and selective hand picking gives this coffee its distinct clean profile. After ripe cherries are separated from underipes, overipes, and foreign matter, processing uses clean water that is then recirculated prior to disposal into seepage pits. The coffee is then dried on raised beds.
High in acidity, body and sweetness. Notes of citrus, pineapple and watermelon.
