About

Available for a Limited Time

African coffees are known for being bright and sweet, and this Kenya Peaberry does not disappoint! We recommend a light roast to bring out the citrus aroma and berry tartness. Darker roasts will enhance the spicy notes but may lose the acidic snap prized among African coffee aficionados.

The Kirinyaga County is located on the slopes of Mount Kenya between Nyeri and Embu County. It is home to some of the most fertile soils of the country, since it is located in a volcanic area. This coffee includes only the PB beans, which are sorted out during dry milling. The particularity is that there is only one bean per cherry instead of two.

The cherries are sorted before being pulped. The parchment is then fermented overnight, before being washed and graded. After that, it is dried on the drying tables for 8-14 days.

This coffee is produced by some of the most known cooperatives in Kenya. Those cooperatives encourage their farmers to pick only the ripest cherries. At a factory level, the quality of the cherries is closely checked.

Our unroasted coffee selections are intended for roasting only. Coffee beans that have been purchased and roasted are not returnable.

Timeline

Harvest and export times are based off when a particular coffee will be at its peak quality. Cherries picked at the start of the harvest season tend to be underdeveloped, and those picked at the end are often overdeveloped, so producers aim for that sweet spot in the middle.

Harvest

Oct - Dec

Export

March - July

Kenya

Though not quite on Ethiopia’s level of coffee producing, Kenya’s terroir is prime for growing specialty coffee, and is slated to become the next big origin. Bungoma County’s mountainous landscape, rainfall, and warm average temperature make for coffee that’s as deep and complex as it is fruity and brilliantly brigh...
