One of the oldest coffee farms in Africa, Nyeri Hill was begun by the Catholic Archdiocese in 1904 to benefit local education and health. Beans were originally exported to Turin, the home town of the founders. Italian tradition + Kenyan coffee? Molto buono!
In late January we were cupping with our friends at Dormans Coffee in Kenya. This cup stopped us in our tracks: a stunner! Wine-like notes of black currant, cherry, and passion fruit.
"Brewed in my chemex, received as one of the samples and one of the favorites. It has the fruity bite but nothing sour or off kilter. Smooth finish. Would recommend." (4 out of 5)
"In the humble words of the magnanimous king Teddy Richard the second, son of Kevin, the Unbroken, the savior of souls, the Man of Men, this coffee is astounding. It is less a coffee, and more of an experience my friends! This is the kind of drink you bring home to meet your family during the holiday" (5 out of 5)
