Our new Kenya from Muranga arrives at the shop! We finally have some new crop from Muranga. It is another great example how Thika as a speciality region is growing. Think some great coffees like Kiriaini and Weithaga that came from this region as well. The combinantion of the fertile soil, seasonal rainfall and high altitude make some great coffees. This is very elegant, with plum and chocolate notes. Enjoy!
In 2015 we were surprised to taste supreme coffee from this region, since that day Kiriaini, Weithaga and plenty of other great coffees are spoiling our taste buds. Anno 2020 we buy as many Muranga as we buy from better known regions as Kirinyaga or Nyeri.
Murang’a County has cool temperatures and fertile central highlands, lying between the Eastern base of the Aberdare (Nyandarua) Range, which forms part of the Eastern end of the Great Rift Valley, and the South-Western slopes of Mt. Kenya. The combination of fertile volcanic soil, seasonal rainfall and high altitude provide the ideal climate for high cupping coffees like this one.
