This is the first coffee to arrive from our sourcing trip to Kenya earlier this year and we're delighted to finally be able to share it with you! A few lots from Muchagara tasted excellent this year, but this peaberry lot particularly stood out for its distinctive ripe red apple aromas. It also has some fantastic florals in the aroma, followed by some more typical heavy blackcurrant and treacle flavours, and a crisp, refreshing acidity.

Muchagara Factory is the oldest washing station in Kirinyaga, established in 1959, and now part of the Baragwi Farmers’ Co-operative Society. It serves around 1700 smallholder farmers, who grow a mix of traditional Kenyan varieties, producing around 200 tonnes per year. At the factory the cherries are sorted for ripeness, dry fermented, then washed and graded in channels before being dried on raised beds.
