Kenya Microlot- Ruchu Grade AA 500g
This microlot comes from Ruchu, a sub district of Murang’a County. The nearest main town is Kandara. Murang'a County is one of the five counties in the country’s central region. Murang'a County is thought to be birthplace of Kenya’s Kikuyu community; it’s also where the Mau Mau uprising began that bought bitter conflict to area and played a significant part in Kenya’s independence.
Ruchu Gacharage Farmers’ Cooperative Society, which was established in 1961, has around 700 active members with approximately 350 hectares of coffee under cultivation producing up to 335 metric tonnes of cherry annually. Coffee is all handpicked and taken to the mill daily. Rigid quality control ensures only ripe cherries are processed with all cherries hand sorted. All the water used for the washed process is drawn from the nearby Ruchu River.
Mandarin over-tones with silky dark chocolate, very juicy. One of the best Kenyans we've tried.
