Rob Says: This uncompromising coffee is an ideal example of what a good small estate coffee can be.
Where most coffee farmers join a cooperative who offers the coffee together with lots from other farmers at multiple exporting companies, this lot from EVANS ESTATE is the result of a collaboration with Kenyacof/Sucafina. The coffee gets milled at the Sucafina dry mill in Thika and via them we bought the full AA lot exclusively at auction, so very transparant and more money for the farmer(s).
This must be our first ‘Kiambu coffee’ in a very long time. The fields are located relatively closeby Nairobi and the cup tastes less acidic, but fattier and more balanced than most Kenyans….
