Calling all Kenya lovers: this is the coffee for you! Kagumo is a community blend from the Kagumo Coffee Factory, which is run by John Muchir and three permanent staff members. Kagumo belongs to the Mutira Farmers' Cooperative Society that has 300 members who farm classic Kenya varietals of SL-28 and SL-34, as well as Ruiru 11 and Batian. This AB-size lot, which is flat beans from 15-16 screen size, is incredibly juicy and bright, with classic red fruits and Kenyan sparkling acidity. While we have personally struggled in previous years getting coffee from Kenya, this is not one of those years. We were blown away by this coffee's clarity and acidity, but it still contains some of the savory elements and deep sweetness we have come to associate with the region.
