Kenya Embu Kathangariri

Kathangariri Factory

Pristine and bright with stunningly high structure, crystal-clear berries, and mellow tropical fruits, this coffee from the foothills of Mount Kenya is everything we hope for in a washed Kenyan coffee. We love working with producers here, where the country’s intricate, cooperative system of coffee trade empowers estate owners and smallholders and allows us to discover hidden treasures like this one. In the region of Embu, where the Kathangariri Coffee Factory is located, jacaranda trees break into blossom in the late, rainy months of the year, drenching the quiet province in a flurry of violet and blue. In other words (Prince’s, to be specific), this is a coffee with a fondness for bathing in the purple rain.
