Finally, Kenya is back on the menu! For some time we were wondering whether or not we'd even see anything from one of our favorite origins this year, if only because things are just so up in the air right now. This is going to be our only offering, but it's a really great one. Will worked with Sucafina to source Spikes AB, a single-estate coffee from Kiambu county. The small 3.5ha estate is perfectly situated at altitude, and it is operated meticulously by owner Manasseh Kibochi. This washed SL-28 is depulped and dry fermented for up to a day and then soaked for an additional 24 hours, which helps give it loads of exactly what we love so much about Kenya coffee. It's got super bright red fruit, deep sweetness, and a spicy complexity that make it just so enjoyable—especially this time of year.
