Kenya Kirinyaga is among the most pleasurable coffees to drink, with many qualities that are absolutely remarkable. From the moment you're aroused with its exquisite aroma until the second you savor the last sip of its sweet comfort, it is truly awe-inspiring.
This remarkable coffee is grown in volcanic loam soil on Mount Kenya, which rises high above Kirinyaga County, Kenya at an elevation of 1800 meters above sea level. (This is a very high elevation for coffee to be grown!) It is grown by smallholder farmer After harvest, the coffee cherries go through depulping and fermenting. This Kenya Kirinyaga is fully washed with nearby river water, twice. (This water is recycled and the husk is used for composting.) It is then dried on raised beds in the sun.
