Kenya Nyeri Asali AA Top Washed (200g)
Altitude: 1700 masl
Tasting Notes: Floral, yellow peach, solid body
Made up of SL28 & 34 varietals, this coffee is found at the foothills of the Aberdare ranges that form the Eastern border of the Great Rift Valley. Under the Asali Cooperative which has membership of over a hundred farmers, it produces more than a thousand bags each year. During harvesting in March, the coffee cherries are handpicked and pulped in a wet mill after which they are fermented for 24 hours and dried on drying tables. All defects are removed by hand at this drying stage.
They have a bright, tropical fruit and floral taste and at the same time a solid, medium body.
