MORE INFO ABOUT THIS COFFEE

This rare certified organic coffee from Kenya is a first for us. Due to economic and climate change pressures and older average tree age, the vast majority of coffee grown in Kenya is cultivated with chemical fertilizers and herbicides. This coffee exists solely due to the commitment of the locally owned and managed Muiri Estate. The farm - named after and African tree species, Prunus Africana, "muiri" in Kikuyu - spans 443 acres with 216 of them dedicated to coffee.       

Muiri has over 150,000 coffee trees in production and 94,000 old and new-growth trees for shade throughout the property. Estates of this size with no mechanization for harvesting require massive amounts of labor, and Muiri has developed not only a cottage community for its staff, but has also donated enough of its own land for 1,000 families to grow beans, a common household staple in Kenya.

The property uses a dam to gather fresh water for fermentation, which is then re-used for moving cherry through the pulper before placing it in seepage pits for filtration. Muiri’s formidable resources are being used in the right direction. They have been certified since 2008 and continuing to raise and process beautiful coffees using wholly organic inputs and canopy management. We're so excited for you to taste the fruits of these incredible efforts.
