Kenya Nyeri Aberdare

Kenya Nyeri Aberdare


Aberdare Farmers Cooperative Society (FCS) is on the smaller side with 30 current members. The farms stretch out in the foothills of the Aberdare mountain range, not too far from Nyeri's center. Altitude in this area starts around 1500 meters above sea level all the way up to 1950 meters at the highest point. This coffee was purchased direct, not through the Kenya auction system, to avoid the risk of losing it. To do this our partners pay a price that is higher than what the top auction bid might be, but it means we get the exact lot we want!

Aberdare is a spiced cup with a dark sugar sweetness, and tart citrus is accentuated by roasting on the lighter end of the spectrum. The aroma is fairly muted for Kenya but offers sweet smells of raw sugar, dark spices, and glimpses of dark fruit. Our roast has a sweet toasted sugar flavor up front, leading into a dark grape and cinnamon stick. The finish is marked by wood and mulling spice notes that give off a sandalwood impression in the long aftertaste.

This coffee is part of the 'Farm Gate' program from our friends at The Coffee Shrub, which means they have negotiated directly with the farmer, and guarantee prices that are at least 50%, and often more than 100%, over fair trade.
