Our Kenya Lenana is a blend of AA screen size coffees from traceable sources, both estates and cooperatives, and prepared by our sister company Taylor Winch (Coffee) Ltd in Kenya. The coffee was grown by smallholders - with an average of 200 trees each - who delivered their freshly picked ripe cherries to cooperative wet mills. The Lenana AA Plus was disc pulped, fully fermented and washed, sundried on elevated drying tables. Consolidated parchment volumes were then delivered to dry mills where the parchment was hulled, graded according to size and density, warehoused and warranted for sale.
