This single origin gold label is a classic example of what we love about Kenyan coffees: Vibrant acidity, Crisp fruit flavors, and a syrupy sweet body.
Kirinyaga County, where Thunguri Factory is located smack bang in the middle of the country’s leading coffee-producing region. The best Kenya coffees are almost always sourced from this region.
This is an dynamic coffee!! Energized with a lemon zest-like zing and exploding with notes of sweet-tart blackcurrant jam. A sensational pour over coffee.
Our first offering from industry favorite producers Long Miles coffee
, this is a particularly exciting offering for us. Long Miles first began producing coffees a decade ago in Burundi and caught industry attention for their exceptionally clean offerings. It was always their dream to start a long miles coffee farm in western Kenya. Finding the perfect piece of land 1900m-2200m close to the edges of the national park in Western Kenya they purchased and began planting the prized SL28 and SL34. The early results are outstanding and we are stoked to have finally began a buying relationship with them
