Description

The Kenyan Makwa PB was sourced from Bespoke coffee. They were initially attracted to the coffee because of its full body which not usually associated with Kenya coffee. We selected this coffee from their cupping session.

Kenya and Coffee

There two important facts about coffee with regards to Kenya.

  1. First the French and then the British planted coffee there. Starting with coffees that had left the continent, and via the Dutch, French, Spanish and Portuguese and after much botatnical intervention had come back to Africa.
  2. Scott Labs started there. The Scott Labs are now famous for the varieties of Arabica they created, and still continue to create.

With only just over 120 years of coffee growing history many coffee people sing the praises of coffees from Kenya.

Kenyan Makwa

The Makwa Coffee Estate is nestled amongst many macadamia nut plantations and produces on average 120 tons of coffee each year. Since the current ownership took over the farm int he 1970s, they have taken a proactive approach to reducing the impact of climate change. By planting indigenous shade trees this coffee benefits from slower cherry maturation rates – helping contribute to sweetness and body in the cup.
