About this coffee :
This Ruarai AB is another coffee that was cupping better than most of the general AA's this season. It's from Nyeri, and is a coffee we have bought for some years. Ruarai is also the name of the river that passes through the area, and this is where they get their clean water for their processing.
The factory is under the Ruthaka Farmers Cooperative Society. They are supported by Tropical farm management, a company that supports smallholders to increase their coffee production as well as help the factories on quality control and traceability related to processing.
The factory is also giving out the fruit after pulping for the farmers to make compost. The coffees are traditionally processed with dry fermentation before washed and graded in channels and dried on raised beds. The farmers are mainly growing SL28 and SL34, but might also have other varieties mixed in.
This is a complex Kenyan coffee. With black cherries, raspberries and gooseberries. Chocolate and caramel sweetness. Good structure and creamy mouthfeel, a well-balanced cup of coffee!
