Fine Kenyan coffees are known for their bright, fruity flavors: this roast belongs in a punch bowl. We love the notes of sparkling cranberry cocktail and lingering lemon twist. Mellow finish, like fruit tea with honey. A very cosmopolitan coffee.
Ichamara is the name of the community washing station and settlement in Nyeri County, Kenya. The Ichamara washing station is one of five in central Kenya that is managed by the majority women operated New Gikaru Coffee Growers Cooperative. Farmers in this part of Kenya are typically more small scale, each growing about 250 coffee trees on half acre plots. When brewing this coffee you can expect a juicy cranberry acidity, honey sweetness, and lemon zest finish.
"This coffee is a good light roast but likely not enough flavor for those who prefer something darker and bolder. "
"Drunken black it is acidic with sour fruit notes, with a a nice aftertaste. No sugar needed, but a splash of cream evens out the sourness. This is light and fruity. "
"This a delicious light coffee. You can really taste the hints of honey and lemon. It definitely has a tea-like quality that was surprising and tasty."
"This one really grew on me — at first I thought it was nice an subtle, but not exceptional. But cup after cup it just got better and better somehow. Now it's definitely one of my all time favorites — a pleasant taste that is lively enough, but certainly not overwhelming."
