Kenya Iriga Premium AA Microlot

A complicated cup where the sweet currants and raisins mingle together with the aromas of merlot and citrus

This coffee has been processed at the Iriga Wet Mill situated in the Nyambene Hills in Meru County. Two crucial rainy seasons provide an average 1000mm annual rainfall. The rich red murram earth with its volcanic composition and high acidity levels is perfect for coffee.

The Iriga co-op draws off farms in the Mukui, Kioja, Weru areas. With 320 members, each growing coffee on an average of 30 hectares, availability of this line is very limited but in high demand.

 

Cupping Score: 89.38

 

The main crop in Kenya harvests between September to December with a fly crop or mitaca harvesting in June through August. The coffee is fully washed, fully fermented and sun dried on raised beds.

This coffee is perfect in a plunger/pour over or cold drip.
