We love this coffee for its uniquely “Kenyan” profile. It is juicy and complex. The specific grade is AB which we believe only adds to its complexity. The flavor profile is at the same time comforting and exotic with medium acidity (think apple), displaying top notes of tropical mango, herb and sun dried tomato over a sweet and balanced coffee base.
About The Farm:
Windrush Coffee Estate is run by approximately 300 Kenyan shareholders, who in the 1970s purchased the farm from a British settler. Rather than divide up the property, they kept it whole. They have a board of directors and a management team that oversees the business of the estate.
Kiambu County’s deep red volcanic soils are rich in organic matter. The region receives approximately 1100 mm of rainfall per annum. These factors and its cool climate make Kiambu conducive for coffee farming.
Timely and selective hand picking is practiced at Windrush Coffee Estate. Cherries are delivered to a wet mill the same day they are picked. Red ripe cherries are separated from under ripe cherries, over ripe cherries and foreign matter prior to pulping. Processing uses clean river water that is re-circulated before disposal into seepage pits. Sun drying on raised tables is done before delivery of the coffee to the dry mill for secondary processing. -From the importer.
