Blackcurrant, Acacia Honey, Floral
This is our first time purchasing from Sidney and Lot 20, after a year or so since we first connected. We’re really happy to have this beautiful lot as part of our offering this season.
This Ainabtany AB is a SL28, SL34 and Ruiru 11 washed lot from Kericho county, with a classic, juicy and sweet Kenyan profile.
While Western Kenya is a term used to describe any coffee grown west of Nairobi, there is a wide range of terroir within Kenya's western counties. Kericho is one of the many coffee growing regions, and it has its unique characteristics and flavour profile.
Kericho is located in the highlands, which are known for their rich volcanic soil, ideal climate and altitudes ranging from 1,300 to 2,200 meters above sea level. The result is a dense and flavourful seed! Kericho coffee is typically produced using the washed processing method. This process helps to produce a clean and bright cup, with a well-defined acidity and a full body. Ainabtany Coffee Farmers Services also use their own unique approach to washed coffees which includes a long fermentation, extremely thorough washing and an initial slow shade drying before sun drying on raised beds.
