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
The Ethiopia Natural Yirgacheffe Wenago is sourced from more than 850 farmers living in Wenago in Ethiopia! Farmers deliver ripe cherries to the Wenago mill which is owned and operated by Oumer Abudu. Ripe cherries are carefully sorted and placed on raised drying beds in thin layers and turned every 2 to 3 hours during the first few days of the drying process.
Doña Amparo is an example of Perseverance! After losing her husband to illness 20 years ago, she continued to farm and raise her 5 children. Two of these children help her now on the day to day farm upkeep, and live here with their families. With a higher altitude than most farms in this region, Angosturas is a true pleasure to visit with natural forests and wildlife surrounding it.
This fair trade unique coffee is only available for a short time!
