The Kii AA, Kirinyaga County, Kenya story:
The coffee grown in rich and fertile red volcanic soil is handpicked by the smallholder members and delivered to the factory where is it pulped. This will initially separate the dense beans from the immature 'mbuni's (floaters). The beans are then put through a two-step fermentation process, each lasting up to 24 hours. After, the beans go through washing channels and are soaked for 24 hours, helping to give the complex fruit flavours that Kenyan coffees are so famed for.
The Kii factory is located in Ngairiama in the Gichugu division of Kirinyaga district in Central Province. It is one of three factories that make up the Rungeto Farmers Coop Society. The coop was established in 1953 and now has around 3507 members.
The Kii AA makes a great filter with all brew methods and a complex, super sweet Kenyan espresso.
