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. For the past two years, Trabocca, the importer we work with to secure these lots, 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 pretty cool, and we are delighted once again to share this year's selection with you!

Similar to last year, you can expect dark fruit notes like plum and black currant.  We are also enjoying a pomelo-like acidity and brown sugar finish.  Definitely great for drip, but we'd recommend for a sugary full bodied espresso as well!
