This coffee comes to us from the Kieni factory, part of the Mugaga Cooperative located near the town of Nyeri.  Year after year they have an astonishing ability to consistently produce sweet, clean, and complex coffees. Like most of the cooperatives in the area, members tend to work much smaller plots of coffee trees than their estate farm competition, thus having more control over the production of ripe cherry. -Coffee Shrub

You may already know that the typical coffee cherry has two coffee seeds (or beans) inside, but thanks to a wonderful genetic mutation that naturally occurs in coffee plants, we are often awarded with a peaberry, in which the coffee cherry has grown with only a single seed inside. They end up smaller, denser, and more adorable than their larger cousins, but they also tend to be sweeter - and this peaberry is no different.  Deliciously acidic limes party in the cup with peaches and honey and are rounded out by a cereal-like sweetness.  - Boomtown
