Kamundu, Kenya (1kg)
Notes: Dark Chocolate, Raspberry, Melon
Natural processing is a rarity in Kenya, so we’re excited to bring you Kamundu, a naturally processed coffee from the Kiambu region of Kenya. Kiambu county is located just outside of Nairobi city. The region has a long history of coffee production and is famous for its large estates which were originally built by British colonists in the early 20th century. After decolonisation, the estates were sold to local Kenyans who have been managing them since. Estates such as Kamundu continue a legacy of many generations of coffee production, supported by unparalleled local knowledge and experience.
We’re pretty excited to have a natural Kenyan on our shelves this Christmas, as for most of the team, this is their first experience of a natural Kenyan coffee. We would imagine it would be the same for many of our customers and subscribers! This is a super interesting coffee, with a big juicy body balanced out by a beautiful acidity. On the cupping table, we tasted notes of dark chocolate and raspberry, with a delicate honeydew melon acidity. Get ready for something different with this coffee, we can’t wait to hear how you get on with it.
