Kigutha Estate is a large 99 hectacre estate that grows SL-28 and Bourbon varietal coffees and processes it on site in state of the art facilities. It is owned by the Tropical Farm Management group which oversees humanitarian and environmental standards. Their coffee has won extensive awards around the world in the past decade, and they've been growing coffee since 1919. Fun fact: the wooden drying beds have to be rebuilt every harvest time because termites eat through them in a year.

 

This coffee is remarkable. Roast it light, keep it well out of the 2nd cracks. 25 seconds out of the 1st cracks is the farthest you would want to take it, but we are going a little bit lighter than that even. The initial taste is blackcurrant, and as it cools in your mouth, it has a juicy lavender character to it. It has a great acidity brightness at the start and then smooths out as the coffee cools. The finish has some chocolate to it, leaving a great taste in your mouth. 

  • All our coffee is packed in 200g, 500g or 1kg foil-lined and valved bags.
  • Unparalleled same day shipping service.  
  • Standard delivery is charged at £2.95 per order (mainland uk).
