This delicious Peaberry lot was produced at The Twin River Estate, near the town of Thika in Kenya’s Kiambu County.
Situated just north of Nairobi and to the South of Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountain Ranges, Twin River Estate takes its name from rivers Rui Ruaka and Gacii. The rivers provide a substantial amount of hydroelectric power to Kenya, as well as most of the water used for coffee processing at the estate. The land surrounding Kiambu is blessed with deep red volcanic soils, rich in organic matter, perfect for coffee farming.
This vibrant, fully-washed coffee is carefully picked and processed before being left to dry for 2-3 weeks on raised African beds. It produces a clean and complex cup that delivers a sweet, rich and buttery body, complemented by balanced acidity and notes of blackcurrant, sultana and peach iced tea.
