Like many coffee-lovers, fresh Kenyan coffees are something we look forward to all year. This stunning lot from Kii washing station in Kirinyaga is no exception.
The Kii Coffee Factory is run by members of the Rung’eto Famers Cooperative. The cooperative has over 1,200 members, who each own small plots (averaging around 400 trees) and together have established a reputation for growing some of the finest coffees in the world.
This coffee has a vibrant acidity which reminds us of rhubarb and pink grapefruit. There are floral notes of citrus blossom and what makes this coffee unique is that these bright highlights are supported by a velvety mouthfeel and flavours of yoghurt and vanilla.
