Two unusual factoids from our colleagues in Kenya: The Karumandi factory, which opened its doors in 1961, was named after the many moles that had been common in that area. And, the factory is en route to the Kamweti Castle, where the Queen of England stayed before Kenya’s independence, in 1963.
At the Karumandi factory, the coffee is washed with the fresh river water and dried in the sun on raised beds. Thanks to a recycling process, the factory re-uses the water throughout the day, to significantly reduce water consumption.
Cupping notes: Melon, Meyer lemon, chocolate; bright, juicy acidity, silky body.
