PERC Coffee // Kenya Kianderi AA

kenya kianderi

Situated 120km north of Nairobi, Kianderi is in Murang’a county, bordering the more well known Nyeri District to the south of Mt. Kenya. Smallholder farmers in this area are generally of Kikuyu ethnicity. Kianderi ‘Factory’ is a washing station established by the Weithaga Farmer Cooperative Society. The coop is comprised of over 1100 smallholder members who deliver fresh cherry to the factory (washing station) throughout the November – January harvest period.

Due to the incredibly rich red volcanic sandy soil in the region, bean sizes are very large, producing on average around 18% AA. The coffee is of a Fully Washed process and is dry fermented with fresh river water from Kabuku Springs; it is then sun-dried on tables.

Welcome to my Table, here in the corner of this cafe. Today we’re sipping the Kenya Kianderi AA, from PERC Coffee in Savannah, Georgia. Feel free to pull up a chair.
