Drop what you’re doing its fresh crop from Kenya. Let’s be honest folks, Kenya’s just hit different. This one is from the Kabare Konyu co-op located west of Mt. Kenya and north of Kenyan coffee epicenter Nyeri in the Kirinyaga zone. Kabare is a pretty large producers co-op that operates about 11 milling factories, mostly on the southern side of Mt. Kenya. Konyu represents about 800 producers, so it’s no tiny fly by the seat of their pants operation. Kabare knows a thing or two about processing coffee, and this lot we purchased from them is proof that they can turn out a coffee that is second to none. Kirinyaga actually means “God’s resting place” and is the name the Kikuyu people refer to Mt. Kenya by. This coffee is definitely good enough to serve to god almighty.

Approach - This Kenya we take to a “medium-rare” roast level. This is some of the best green coffee we will be working with all year, so our approach is to make sure we retain all of the good stuff naturally in the bean. So, of course that means a light roast. But wait, this coffee is also super dense and if we roast it a little more we will get a super awesome sweetness out of it. Welp, looks like we are going medium rare. Rare enough to keep all the unique terroir or the coffee, but medium enough to make sure the coffee is sweet, round and has a great aftertaste. Awesome. Kenyan coffees are super distinct, and this coffee is a great example of what makes them so sought after. A true coffee for connoisseurs.
