Story: This is a truly mind-blowing experience! For the last few years, I have been looking for an exceptional Kenyan coffee like this. It is first a wonderful expression of what we expect from a SL28/34 from Nyeri in Kenya, but on top of this, I get truly excited over what the Carbonic Maceration process contributes to this coffee as a whole.
First we experience the amazing high quality acidity and vibrant red current notes. On top of that we experience red florals, tropical fruit notes and a stunning structure!
This coffee makes me excited, not only about this coffee per se, but also about the future of specialty and competition coffee going forward!
Carbonic Maceration: A CM-processed coffee means that the coffee cherries are placed in temperature and humidity controlled tanks flushed with Carbon Dioxide to remove oxygen from the tank. After fermentation, the coffee is dried on African beds for 12-35 days before resting until it's time for milling.
