Cultivated on the slopes of Mount Kenya, this colorful roast will “peak” your interest. Up front notes of berries, banana, and pineapple slide into a savory finish of spicy root beer. Lenana Banana Sarsaparilla! Have fun with this playful coffee.
This cofee comes from a number of smallholder farmers in the Mt. Kenya region, each of who farm about 150 cofee trees. Mount Kenya is the tallest mountain in Kenya, and the second tallest in Africa, after Kilimanjaro. This cofee is named after Mt. Kenya’s second-highest peak, Lenana — a visit to which will take an adventurous climber past rainforest, moorlands, gorges and jagged peaks. On a clear day, the summit of Kilimanjaro is visible from Lenana, 200 miles across the savannah. The farmers here deliver their just-picked red cherry to cooperative wet mills, which disc pulp, ferment, wash and then sundry the cofee on elevated drying tables.
"I enjoyed this one, but would have liked a little more chocolate. It was very good, smooth coffee though. "
