Kenya Kiambu Kirura
Kirura is one of thirteen washing stations that comprise Komothai, the largest cooperative society in Kiambu County. The region is a collage of historic colonial-era coffee land, single-farmer estates, and well-run cooperatives. Uniting the growers is the rich soil of Mt. Kenya, unremitting sunshine, and wildflower-lined roads that ultimately lead to nearby Nairobi. Under these conditions, the Kirura blushes with notes of stone and tropical fruits. Nuanced tartness, like that of a plump rosehip, makes this a lively cup that performs well any way it’s served: drip or over ice.
