We Taste - Golden raisin, brown sugar, juicy fruit

Juicy fruit, it's gonna move ya! The farmer-members of Kinunga work together through COOPAC, a cooperative that pays Fair Trade and quality premiums while providing social services and assisting in development of sustainable practices. Organically-grown Red Bourbon is picked ripe and delivered same day to Kirorero Washing Station, where the coffee is washed processed with a fermented twist. After depulping, the pectic-covered coffee seeds are air-dried, then soaked in fresh mountain spring water. This dual fermentation yields both dried and juicy fruit flavors, making this light roast perfect for refreshing brews.

Process: Washed - Includes a unique soaking step, similar to Kenya.
