Kambiri is a small farm owned and operated by Decimah Mmayi, a second generation coffee farmer whose family has grown coffee in Kambiri town since the early 1960’s. Decimah was born and raised in Kambiri village, before moving to Nairobi to attend university. In 2005 she returned to the area and bought five acres to farm. Decimah’s late father planted 5,000 seedlings as a gift, to see if she would enjoy coffee farming. He made her promise not to uproot these plants until after he died, but he needn’t have worried. Decimah fell in love with coffee after the first flowering and has since expanded her farm to seven acres.
Grown with love from those very first seedlings, this bright and nuanced Kenyan roast is a cornucopia of autumn flavor: tart red apple, dried fruits, a finish of spicy cinnamon candy within a sweet, creamy body. It’s the apple of our eye... and our mug!
