Ndaroini is a washing station in the prized growing region of Nyeri, north of Nairobi. The producers in this area worked hard to build their own washing station which was completed in 1984. Early in 2019, Trabocca, the importer we worked with to secure this lot, purchased the entire harvest from Ndaroini and paid far above standard prices/kg and an extra premium directly to the washing station. We think this is cool, and will certainly be looking to buy more in 2020!

And the coffee? Nyeri terroir + SL28 and SL34 varieties, + excellent processing = really tasty coffee. You can expect dark fruit notes like plum and black currant, hints of black tea, juicy acidity and a honeyed sweetness.  A lovely coffee for the late summer and early fall months!
