Kenya Kiriga

Kenya Kiriga

Kenya Kiriga comes from the Nyeri umbrella which is like a fair trade co-op idea to protect small family farms. These AA sized beans are grown on the southeastern slopes of the Aberdares mountain range. Farmers deliver their harvested coffee to the Kiriga Factory (wet mill) to be processed.  Cooperative members generally cultivate around 250 coffee trees on half-acre plots intercropped with Bananas and Macadamia trees.

Roast it up and eat a bean. The citrus flavors of cherry and grapefruit pop out and you know you've got something good here. There's a milk chocolate sweetness, and a cherry cobbler aftertaste. Citrus in the background. Vibrant acidity. Brew it up and savor the aroma. 

Roast it about 20 seconds past the end of the 1st cracks. Bright and fruity. Admittedly the end temperature is a little bit finicky. It took us three tries to nail it down. Hurry through the middle of the roast to give it lots of acidity. And at the end of the roast, a degree too dark is sweet but not tart, not juicy, not bright. VERY good coffee but we knew it could be better. A degree too light and it was very bright, very tart, extremely complex, but too sour.
