From roaster, Tandem Coffee Roasters: The Makena Estate sits about 20km from Embu town in KirinyagaCounty on the Nyamindi river. It's a family-owned estate run by Japheth Mwaura, and the farm's proximity to Mt. Kenya and its rich red volcanic soil combined with the fresh water from the Nyamindi river makes for some incredibly vibrant, clean coffees.We were surprised to find the AB selection as one of the more compelling, complex coffees on the table. The normally tart, redfruit of Kenya is a little darker and sweeter in this offering, like blackberries. It's incredibly sweet and creamy, with a floral quality like honeysuckle. Makena AB is a great example of a Kenya coffee that has a more delicate and refined cup quality.
