Excited to bring a Kenyan coffee back onto our menu. This lot from the Kamwangi washing station has that traditional Kenyan profile - lots of fruit, slight tartness, and lingering sweetness.
In Kenya, the processing plant, or where the coffee is dry milled, are called factories. Kamwangi factory is one of two factories under the cooperative named New Ngariama Cooperative Society located in the region of Kirinyaga in the hills surrounding Mount Kenya. Registered in 1997, Kamwangi is Rainforest Alliance certified and has a good structure for tracking payments to producers. They also have established soaking pits for wastewater treatment as well as quality control systems for processing.
