Kenya AA Karumandi Gold Label
An amazing Kenyan coffee was our introduction to the Gold Label coffees. However, I'm not sure we've had a Kenyan Gold label until now. This coffee is exactly why I had to take top tiered coffees and offer them as Gold. When we sampled this one, we could not stop talking about it. This coffee has notes of mandarin orange, caramel, and dark chocolate, with a full body and has vibrant, juicy acidity. I'm so glad that we have this coffee so that I can continue to drink it.
In Karumandi, a settlement in Kenya’s Central Province, at the foot of Mt. Kenya National Park, coffee cherry is selectively hand-picked and delivered to the wet mill the same day. Red, ripe cherries are separated from under-ripes, over-ripes, and any twigs or leaves, and the wet mill processing utilizes clean river water that’s re-circulated before it’s disposed of in seepage pits. Before the coffee is delivered to the dry mill for secondary processing, it’s dried in the sun on traditional raised beds. This AA Karumandi was produced by the Baragwi Farmers Co-operative Society, which has approximately 980 members, made up of producers from the Muchagara, Kagongo, Ruambiti, Nyanja, Kianyaga, Guama, Gachami, Kianjiru, Githiururi, Thimu and Karumandi factories.
