This coffee was grown by smallholder farmers in central Kenya’s Muranga County, where the red volcanic loam soil and high slopes of the Aberdare mountains create ideal growing conditions, then fully washed at the Nguku Factory. We tasted sweet cream, nectarine, raspberry, black tea, florals, and green apple hard candy, with a clean acidity and a tea-like body.

Every coffee we share has been tasted and recommended by our expert Tasting Panel who have years of experience in specialty coffee. We cast a wide net, trying hundreds of coffees, keeping an open mind to new regions, processes, and roasters, and going through many rounds of cupping. If there was an easier way of choosing each coffee, we wouldn’t want to do it. For exclusive weekly coffee suggestions from our panel, join Fellow Drops!
