If you know us, you know we love Kenyan coffees, and we're very excited to release our first from the most recent 2022/2023 harvest. The Kamwangi factory was among the top 5 highest paying factories for cherry this year, making them highly competitive for quality and resulting in high volumes of output, as nearby farmers whose coffee met their qualifications were eager to work with them. Another contributing factor to the high quality this year was the introduction of solar dryers to help provide a more predictable and stable drying environment for processing, ensuring that coffee is dried slowly and evenly. In recent years, excessive rain and sun (largely due to climate change) have both been culprits of negatively impacting quality in Kenya. However, the solar dryers have already proved themselves to be an effective tool against unpredictable weather, and the results speak for themselves (and will continue to as we can expect these coffees to hold their quality against fading). We've been enjoying the vibrant acidity and juicy sweetness of Kamwangi. It's highly complex and we love how the flavors change as the coffee cools, but we've been tasting red currant, blood orange, hibiscus, maple, and oolong tea! 

This year, we forward contracted 7 bags of Kenyan coffee, with Kamwangi making up three of them.
