Kenya is a coffee origin that provides exceptional quality and flavour profiles through traditional processing techniques and attention to detail at the best mills and estates. Kenya has one of the most transparent and strict coffee buying systems in the world via the Nairobi auctions. The majority of Kenyan supply comes from small holder farmers with an average of 0.5 – 3 acres of coffee production. By law in Kenya, a farmer with under 5 acres must be organised into a cooperative. A Co-op may service a number of washing stations, each washing station (or coffee factory) then looking after their small holders in the surrounding area. This particular Zahabu lot is a regional blend from smallholder farmers rigorously selected to fill the traditional Kenyan profile of berries, vibrant acidity and great body. This is classic Kenya at its best.
You may have noticed that we have stopped labelling some coffees as “Filter Roast Profile”. We felt that our previous labelling of microlots did not do justice to our coffees and what we think they are capable of. We want you to feel free to use the coffee any way you like. Read more here.
