ABOUT THIS COFFEE
Our new Black Label Kenya offering comes from the Kigutha Coffee Estate in Kiambu County, just north of Nairobi.
Owned by the Kigutha Farmers Co-op, the estate sits at an altitude of between 1,450 - 1,550 meters above sea level and utilizes 99 hectares of coffee growing in rich, deep red volcanic soils.
This coffee is meticulously hand-picked and wet processed, before being sun dried on raised beds and then graded by size and density and rebagged ready for export.
A light roasted coffee with a medium body and distinct citrus and tart cherry notes, we're very excited to be bringing this unique single origin to Ann Arbor as part of our Black Label range.
Tasting notes: tangerine, tart cherry, hazelnut
