When asked, “Where do our favorite coffees come from?” Kenya is the top of the list. The finest coffees from Kenya boast an intense combination of bright acidity, thick juicy sweetness, and deep lingering complexity. Whether you love these coffees or not, there is no denying that these are consistently the most flavorful coffees on the planet.
Of the brilliant producers from Kenya, Muthonjo is a wild one that makes a splash in a sea of flavorful coffee. Muthonjo is a family owned estate located in the lush, rich soil of the Kirinyaga region in the Central Province. It’s a mixed variety coffee of SL 28, SL 34, and Ruiru 11 that grows at 1650 meters above sea level. In the cup, Muthonjo is a powerful, deep coffee layered in ripe cherry sweetness, and lingering savory, mineral complexity. This is a wild and wise coffee that can best be described as sharing a glass of Cru Burgundy with a good friend.
