Altitude: 1750-1800 masl
Tasting Notes: Palm sugar with apricot and pineapple at the back, sturdy body
The Kirimara Estate is located 12 kilometers from Nyeri Town at the foot of Mt. Kenya set between the Chania and Muriggato Rivers. Nyeri is an ideal coffee growing area, renowned for its high quality production due to the good volcanic soils and conducive climate. The complexity and brightness in the cup can be partly attributed to cool temperatures during the main crop expansion, coupled with rich volcanic soils. The estate was established in the 1920’s by european settlers, but has changed hands many times from owners. The farm is currently owned by Mutanga Investments Company Ltd, which is a family property of the late Engineer Julius Mimano who was Kenya’s first African mechanical engineer and a pivotal figure in the Kenyan railroad. After being dried on raised shadenet tables at Kirimara, the coffee is moved to the Socfinaf Coffee Mill in Ruiru where it is milled and graded. This peaberry delivers rich sweetness and complex flavours in the cup.
