This Kenya comes from the Mugaga County which is in the center of the country, just a little bit South of Kirinyaga. It was processed at the Kagumoini washing mill, which is collectively owned by the thousand farmers who use it to process their coffee. This lot was grown by the Kiru Farmer's Co-op and is a mix of Bourbon-related SL 28 and SL 34 varieties at an altitude of 5,000 feet. SL-28 is the holy grail of Kenya coffee, with the classic blackberry acidity and winey taste and thick mouthfeel. Kenyan coffees are VERY expensive this year.

The Mugaga Farmers Coop Society is comprised of smallholder farmers, each owning an average of 300-500 coffee trees. Grown in the Nyeri region at about 5700 feet, this coffee is picked ripe and delivered to the Kagumoini factory where it's de-pulped, fermented, washed three times, and dried.

Cupping Notes: Sweet, clean, chocolate, cherry, blackberry, black currant, raspberry, tropical fruit, floral.

Its a good coffee bean to play with and get different flavors with. dark roast it and pull out more of the bolder flavors, but slow and light roast it and pull out more of the sweet flavors.
