New coffee! Nyeri Hill Kenya
Calling all lovers of the classic Kenya profile (with a little flair). This coffee is seriously one of the best coffees from Kenya that we have had in a while. It’s juicy, velvety and winey with tasting notes of pomegranate, cherry marmalade, orange zest, vanilla and apricot. If you love a really good Kenyan coffee, you do not want to miss our new lot of Nyeri Hill. (Our last lot of Nyeri Hill scored 95 at the Coffee Review in 2021 and this one is equally as good-if not better!) And read below to learn about how this coffee is sustainable, shade-grown, and quality-driven.
About. One of the first coffee farms established in eastern Africa, Nyeri Hill Estate planted its first coffee seedling in 1914. Located two kilometers northwest of the town of Nyeri, along the Nyeri-Ihururu road, this expansive estate stretches along the slopes of the region’s central highlands. Here, management focuses on cultivating coffees that shine while also prioritizing the community’s long-term sustainability, both from environmental and social perspectives. The organization allocates part of its profits to academic development (with Nyeri High School), professional growth (with Kamwenja Teachers College) and community healthcare (with Mathari Mission Hospital). Along with these social commitments, the leaders at Nyeri Hill focus on reforestation on 250 hectares of the estate, preservation of natural vegetation to encourage biodiversity, and soil retention through solutions like Bermuda Grass cultivation. By approaching their role in the coffee industry holistically, Nyeri Hill Estate strikes a key balance between producing high-quality coffees and providing a high quality of life for their employees and partners.
