Cupping Notes: dark chocolate, coconut, cherry, dried apricot
This Kenya Nyeri is from one of the principal growing regions but comprised of multiple top lots combined. It offers a wonderfully aromatic and complex coffee at a good price. There have been a number of political issues surrounding coffee from Nyeri because it is generally so prized. The governor of Nyeri attempted to control the marketplace several years ago by moving all milling to one central and government run facility in an effort to maximize revenue. This met with objection throughout the growing, exporting and roasting communities and the program has largely failed.
This Kenya coffee comes from the Nyeri County and is comprised of a combination of any small farms with main Bourbon varietals. The altitudes range up to 2000 meters where the coffee is fully washed before being dried on traditional raised beds.
At Sugar Creek Coffee Roasters, we specialize in hand crafted, small batch, artisanal roasted coffee. While other roasters typically pre-roast and have beans on the shelf, we don't roast until you place your order, so you can be assured the freshest roasted coffee is delivered to your door. Each coffee order is roasted to the optimal flavor of the coffee bean you order.
