Faith Estate AA Coffee

The highlight of this coffee is on the floral notes of hibiscus and jasmine along with citric touches that remind us to pineapple, lychee and cherries. In the mouth, it becomes extremely juicy and we can also find a bright acidity, very common in Kenyan coffees.

Cecilia Wanjiku is the owner and co-founder of Faith State, a farmer cooperative located in the region of Kirinyaga in the centre of Kenya. As it happens in many other coffee producer countries, the smallholder’s farmers in Kenya, organize themselves into small coops. Faith state provides monthly training about growing, processing coffee and business planning to more than 30 small estate owners in the area, inactivating the productions of high-quality coffees.

The AA nomenclature of this coffee means that the size of the beans are between 19 and 20 inches and therefore, it is considerate high-quality beans. As most of the Kenyan coffees, this one is fully washed. After a selective handpicking the beans are de-pulped and fermented for 24 hours. Then the beans are washed with cold water and then it dries on raised beds.
