Kenyan – AA Mweiga
Region: Mweiga, Nyeri
Producer: Sasini Estate
A well balanced delicate and nuanced coffee. Sweet with dark fruit jam flavour and creamy hints of stonefruit and clove on the finish.
In the north of Nyeri county, close to the Laikipia border lies Mweiga, a small town near the eastern edge of the Aberdare National Park overlooking the elephant migration route that connects it to Mt Kenya Forest. The farm that is now owned by Sasini was established as Mweiga back in 1919. Ex soldiers planted the first coffee in 1920 after being relocated there after the war.
