ALTITUDE: 1600 - 2300 MASL
VARIETAL: Batian, Ruiru 11, SL28, SL34
PROCESS : Washed
This AA fully washed top lot is from Tambaya Wetmill, part of Rumukia Farmers’ Cooperative Society. Tambaya is one of a few washing stations that form the co-op group based in the heartland of Kukuyu territory, Nyeri. Nyeri County has cool temperatures and fertile central highlands, lying between the Eastern base of the Aberdare Range, which forms part of the Eastern end of the Great Rift Valley, and the Western slopes of Mt. Kenya.
The combination of fertile soil, seasonal rainfall and high altitude provide the ideal climate for coffees characterised by high acidity, full body and ripe fruit flavours. Due to the cool temperatures at altitude, particularly at night time, coffees from Nyeri tend develop and mature slowly producing very dense, hard beans high in acidity and complexity.
