Vibrant berry flavors dominate this Estate-grown selection from Kenya’s Kiambu region in an all-around juicy and intense cup.
The East Africa Protectorate was established by the British Empire in 1895
occupying the land that wouldn’t officially be referred to as “Kenya” until it’s
independence in 1963.
Under British Colonial rule, coffee was grown and produced on large estates and
sold and consumed in London. It wasn’t until the 1950s that control of Kenyan
coffee production would be transferred rightfully back to the Kenyans and Kenya’s
centralized wet-mill system, as we know it today, would come to life.
The Windrush Estate is among Kenya’s original coffee estates and lies shortly
outside Nairobi in the Kiambu region. Here, SL-28 and SL-34 thrive in Kenya’s
rust-colored, mineral-rich soil. Ripe coffee cherries are processed using Kenya’s
trademark double-fermentation before being dried, on-site, on raised beds.
