Kenya Kirinyaga Kariru
When our coffee buyer travels to Nairobi’s central auction in search of standout coffees, first impressions count. So when he sampled this vibrantly fruited coffee, grown in the well-regarded Kirinyaga County and processed by Kariru Factory, he knew it was one to keep. The Kariru is designated as AA-grade coffee, a category based on size and density that’s thought to be the highest quality. But like the disconnect of viewing photographs of Monet’s Water Lilies versus seeing the paintings in person, it’s one thing to have an idea of what quality tastes like; it’s quite another to experience it firsthand.
