Kenya Ndunduri AB Espresso
We find it to be a lot harder to find really nice coffee’s from Kenya these days. This is due to climate change and political unstability throughout the country. It can also be a little nostalgia from our side. Kenya will probably never be better than that first Kenyan Aeropress I tasted years ago. Tasted like blueberry jam. Literally (:
But like Bob Dylan said, times are A changin’. But with a bit more time and effort we managed to actually find a really nice lot from the Ndunduri washing station, so it all worked out in the end.
Ndunduri was built in the early 70s and it is located at the steps of Mount Kenya. There is good management and support from the farmers and staff. It is common to see other crops on the coffee farms like passion fruits, maize, beans, tea, even though farmers are monitored by the field committee not to intercrop. It’s a washed coffee located at 1600 masl and is made up of varieties SL28, SL34, Ruiru 11 and Batian
The result is a very sweet, juicy coffee with a lot of blue and red berries and even some floral notes.
