Kenyan coffee at its best - black currants, with layers of blueberries and hibiscus in the undertone. Great depth and super structured with a super jammy mouthfeel. Kenyan coffee never ceases to impress us and this year's harvest from Kahete is no exception.

Kahete Coffee Factory was founded in 1984 and rests on 5 hectares of land serving the villages of Karunge, Gataragwa and Kirimiya. It is currently affiliated with the Rwaikamba Farmers Cooperative Society and is run by John Muchiri Mwangi.

Kahete Coffee Factory is located north of Nairobi in Muranga County, near the town of Gitugi. This area of ​​Kenya is experiencing a two-year production cycle with the early harvest from March-May and the late second season being from October-December. The main coffees grown here are SL-28 and 34 and Ruiru 11. SL-28 and SL-34 account for 97% of all coffee produced, while Ruiru 11 accounts for about 3% of total production.

Kahete buys its coffee berries from 600 small farmers, member producers, whose farms are located on average 1800 meters above sea level. This high altitude makes the coffee berries ripen more slowly. High altitude, combined with rich volcanic soil and careful cultivation help to highlight the inherent complex fruit flavors of the varieties SL-28 and SL-34. Both varieties are inherited from Bourbon and Moka and are named after the laboratory that promoted their wider distribution in Kenya during the early 20th century, Scott Laboratories.
