Our latest Limited Release coffee comes from The Ndundu Factory situated in the Kiganjo region and among the Central Highlands of Kenya.
Ndundu is well known for maintaining extremely high standards regarding coffee cultivation. The Cooperative is required to purchase all seeds from the Kenya Coffee Research Institution and even employ a specific, ‘Cherry Clerk’, during harvest season to inspect all cherry deliveries are of the highest standards and fit for processing. The Cherry Clerk must keep meticulous records of the quality and quantity of cherries being delivered to the mill every day, and from every smallholder, to maintain fair standards of pay. Any under ripe or damaged cherries will be rejected by the clerk and sent home with the farmer to be dried further until the end of harvest and sold as ‘Mbuni’, natural process coffee that is lower quality.
This incentive to only deliver the best quality cherries that each farmer has harvested continues to improve the standard of coffee coming from Ndundu, every year. This in turn incentives us, the roasters, to continue pushing and improving upon our knowledge and skills as best we can, to honour the incredible hard work that goes into every single bag of coffee you buy.
