ABOUT: 

 

Kiamabara factory is one of five secondary processing units that form the larger Mugaga FCS Society based out of Karatina town, right in the heart of the quality Nyeri coffee growing area.  The farmer small holdings that supply this factory are a handful of kilometers to the south west of Karatina itself.  As is common throughout Kenya, most producers in the co-operative own a few hundred coffee trees and they deliver ripe red cherry from these trees into a central co-operative washing station, like Ndima-ini, for further processing.

This special reserve selection from Kiamabara is of a quality rarely seen in a harvest season. It has an intensity and complexity of citrus, malic and phosphoric acidity, that only Kenyan coffee can produce. This is balanced supremely by a dense, heady sweet, viscous and honey like mouthfeel. We have roasted this coffee light to preserve these characteristics along with a long list of flavours. The stand out characteristics for us are fresh cranberry, mandarin oranges, and molasses. Underlying notes of pink grapefruit and blackcurrant adds interest and harmony.

We are recommending this special reserve coffee as a filter, to bring our it's refinement and expressive nature. It will work in other brew methods .... if you can control temperature parameters on your espresso machine to reign in the acidity it will make a truly delicious single origin shot.
