Description

If you want your coffee to be bold, rich and fruity this is the one for you.

Nchengo Arabica coffee is grown on the slopes of the Aberdare Mountains in the central highlands of Kenya. This area is considered the heartland of traditional coffee growing.

The estate is situated in between two rivers, the Ndarugu and the Thiririka.  This location provides excellent irrigation for the farm and keeps humidity higher and well balanced.  The area has a temperate climate with plenty of rainfall. The beans grow in a red volcanic soil, which provides the nutrients for the vibrant and fruity flavour the bean produces.

This coffee is grown at a high altitude, which means the coffee bean becomes denser and richer. This denseness gives the coffee a strong concentrated flavour; notes of sweet black grape with a sharp blackcurrant taste, with a sweet raisin finish. When picked, the beans are fully washed with only fresh river water from the nearby sources and then left to sundry naturally. This process gives this coffee a cleaner and crisper taste.

We roast all of our beans in our Roastery in Liverpool.
