This Kenya Nyeri Rumukia Thunguri AA is one of the most aromatic coffees I’ve ever roasted! It has aromas of sun ripened strawberries and fresh waffle cones at the beach Boardwalk. The flavors are of vanilla cream soda, peanuts and pink grapefruit slushies. Excellent as a pour over. Check out this YouTube video of the Kenya on a V60
Kenya Nyeri Rumukia Thunguri AA
Kenya Nyeri Rumukia Thunguri AA is a traditional double-washed coffee from Nyeri, Kenya and sourced from family owned farms organized around the Thunguri Factory (the washing station). The Rumukia Farmers Co-operative Society manages the Thunguri Factory. Varieties include SL28 and SL34 selections from the 1930’s and the more recent Batian. The coffee grows at altitudes between 1220 – 2300 meters in volcanic loam soil, fully washed processed and sun dried on raised beds.
Our preferred brew method is a single cup paper pour over with one part coffee to 16 parts water. Water temperature was 203°F with a total brew time of just under 3 minutes including the pre-infused bloom of 45 seconds. We brewed with three different waters; 1. (RO) reverse osmosis water, 2. Our inhouse crafted water and 3. Third wave water. Our preferred water choices are in that order.
- Double wash process
- Sundried on raised beds
- 100% Arabica beans
- Single origin multi varietal
