"KIA MBUU" FOR AN EXCEPTIONAL TASTING EXPERIENCE
Kiambu County is located in the central highlands of Kenya. It is known for its high quality coffee and tea plantations. There are many theories about the origin of the name of this region. One of them wants it to come from the word “kia mbuu” of the Kikuyu clan, which means something like “land of drizzle”. The regular rainfall combined with a volcanic soil rich in minerals make Kiambu County an ideal region for growing coffee. The Arabica beans which ripen at an altitude of up to 1750 m are among the best in the world. Slow maturation at altitude in a temperate climate allows for a delicate development of aromas, of exceptionally high quality, which appeals to all lovers of petit noir.
Prepared in the form of an espresso, the Kenya Limited Edition produces a creamy coffee, which at the same time develops its chocolate and berry aromas in a particularly pleasant way. Its spicy notes, complemented by harmonious roasting aromas, persist in the mouth and take you on a taste journey through a living country.
The delicate roasting releases the complex aromas of these beans from Kenya. The pleasant acidity beautifully rounds off the sweet taste profile, creating a pleasant and unique coffee.
The Arabica beans of this exceptional coffee grow between 1500 and 1750 meters, in the rainy and sunny region of Kiambu County, in the heart of Kenya. Small local farmers collectively take responsibility for the cultivation and harvesting of the grain, carried out by hand.
