Ah, this coffee - wow. We're currently enjoying very intense orange, plum and honey notes with a dark brown sugar finish which coats the mouth and lingers for ages! This is multi-dimensional coffee, a real treat for the taste buds.
Origin: Embu, Central Kenya.
Farm: Rianjangi Farmers Co-operative Society (1500 members).
We're so happy to be able to bring you this truly wonderful coffee, our first from the 2018 crop. It's the first time that we have roasted a Peaberry and so we were a little daunted at the prospect as the beans are really quite different, much smaller and more dense than we're used to.
However, it's a real pleasure to tell you that we're super proud of how this has turned out. This coffee is just blowing us away every time we brew it. Intense and complex with incredibly juicy body. There is just so much going on with this coffee and you can really zoom in to different flavours depending on how you approach the brewing.

More info about his coffee........
Farmers in Rianjagi planted their first coffee trees in 1950. Smallholdings or ‘shambas’ as they are known are typically small – perhaps half to one hectare in size. Coffee is grown as a cash crop and typically each farm only has around 200 trees – enough to produce about 3 sacks of coffee. Other crops are grown for family use; potatoes, mangos, avocadoes, cabbages and beans and there are usually a few cows reared for milk and several chickens for eggs and meat.
The high altitude of the region along with deep and rich volcanic soils bring about the famous high acid and deeply complex coffees that makes Kenyan coffees amongst the best in the world.

This is a lovely Kenyan, the orange acidity makes it like a chocolate orange but a chocolate orange that has been on the Cointreau and got a bit rowdy. Once the orange has faded your a left with a really lovely smooth sweet aftertaste. This for me is a great breakfast coffee!
Wow, what can I say, the flavour profile is awesome. It's acidity has quite a bite that is really vibrant and refreshing.
It might seem a waste to some, but I just love these fruity ones in an iced coffee. Two spoons of this in the aeropress with maybe 20ml of water, pressed onto ice, poured into an ice filled glass. Wow!
Just had my 1st taste of this in a flat white after resting for a week. 18g -> 40g in 40s. Really nice and fruity, now going to tweak the recipe to see if I can get any more out of it!
Kenya peaberry varieties never let me down in the past and this one (when I get it right) comes with both citrus and dark fruits flavours
There is a good amount of brightness in keeping with Kenyan coffee and a healthy amount of sweetness to balance that out.
Can't wait for these guy's recommended recipe to test it out!
Bought as I needed a bit of a kick to my coffee, the flavor profile sounded good. Absolutely blown away. RECOMMENDED.
We're not talking about fruitiness or huge complexity with this coffee - and the acidity...
Here we go again! - this is a coffee that barely needs an introduction. This is the fifth...
Here it is - an amazing example of beautiful Kenyan coffee. Oodles of blackcurrants and a big juicy body sit...
