Kainamui is a washing station which serves around 1,800 smallholder farmers who are members of the New Ngariama Farmers Cooperative Society in the Kirinyaga region, north of Nairobi. A third of the cooperative's members are women.
This particular lot wowed us with intensely sweet aromatics and a spectrum of citrus flavours in the cup. Kainamui is definitely a powerhouse Kenya, but with enough delicate nuance and a changing cup profile from hot to warm to cool to keep us smiling and coming back for more. Please enjoy!
