ABOUT THIS COFFEE
This coffee is from a small group of roughly 30 small farmers in the Eastern highlands of Meru, Kenya. They call their group "Kushikamana" as it roughly translates to "working together", and accurately describes the work that goes into coordinating coffee deliveries and processing. Each small holder depulps, ferments, and dries their own coffee separately, and then work together to deliver as a group in order to construct exportable volumes. This is different than the typical Kenyan "Factory" site that our import partner buys from, where coffee is delivered to the central location in whole cherry and then processed in large blended batches. Meru is said to be the first location in Kenya where coffee was grown by the local population going all the way back to the mid 1920s. The cup profiles we're tasting from the region tend to have dark and dried fruit characteristics, mild to moderate acidity, and weighty mouthfeel. Cultivars grown in Meru are typically Ruiru-11 with SL-34 and 28 mixed in. There's quite a range of altitude as well with coffee grown as high as 2000 meters and as low as 1300.
