On the southern slopes of Mount Kenya, the Runget’o Cooperative Society runs three factories (i.e. mills) - Kii, Kiangoi, and Karimikui - all of which are known for producing some of the best coffees in the world. This offering comes from the Karimikui Factory, which receives coffee from 1,400 registered smallholder farmers. The quality of this coffee is a testament to the careful farming and processing of the Runget’o Coop. 

A delightfully complex, layered coffee, Karimikui AA opens with rich aromatics of blackberry, cocoa, and a hint of vanilla. In the cup, look for refreshingly bright notes of lime, grapefruit, and rose hip (think Red Zinger tea) underpinned by the tangy sweetness of persimmon.
