Kenya Kirinyaga Ndunduri AA

Kenya Kirinyaga Ndunduri AA

Farm Description

This is an AA grade coffee from the Ndunduri Factory, a collection site where coffee cherry from the local farmers is purchased and processed for export. The Factories operate to serve the surrounding farmers who are cooperative members by contributing agronomical assistance and other services to the community, and ultimately helping to usher their coffee cash crop to the global market. Ndunduri is part of the Kibungu Farmer's Cooperative Society ("FCS"), which is comprised of five Factories in total in highland areas of the Embu region. Farmers grow a mix of SL cultivars, as well as Ruiru 11. Altitude in the area ranges from 1800 to just about 2000 meters above sea level.

This coffee is part of our Farm Gate pricing program.

Cupping Notes

The dry fragrance is marked by honey sweetness and red berry, a sweet orange whiff in my lightest City roast. Darker roasting brings about fruits of a darker hue too, and berry and grape smells really come to fore after adding hot water. The wetted crust shows exceptionally sweet fruit smells, like a berry jam and brown sugar and orange glaze, and my Full City roasts showed a mix of grape and dark roast tone. Ndunduri is an intense brewed cup at a wide range of roasts. My City roast was the brightest with an orange tartness adding a striking vibrance to flavors of lemon meringue, and cranberry-orange juice. The finish is spiced, like clove powder, and with a bit of an unexpected honey dew note in the long finish. Full City roasting definitely brings out a bittersweetness that has an appealing cacao side. But after cooling just a little, dark berry and grape flavors gain prominence to the point of dominating the cup. I'm impressed by the level of sweetness at Full City too, a dense raw sugar flavor acts as a sort of buttress for the rest of the complex cup notes.
