This Coffee's Story:

Vertere Coffee Roasters is exited to find and bring you a Kenya AB coffee that is sure to both please and intrigue you. The coffee is medium-bodied, and it has a wonderful aroma that draws you in to the first sip. This coffee is very balanced in acidity and has a deep, slightly tart taste that entices you to drink more.

Our Kenya AB comes from the Kabare Cooperative Society which oversees 11 washing stations in Kirinyaga disrict, mainly on the southern slopes of Mount Kenya. With a membership of 12,300 farmers, the coop is managed by 9 elected board members.

The Karani washing station represents about 600 of these small farmers, with a total intake of 450,000 kg of cherry per season. "Karani" is the Kikuyu name of the original owners of the farm where this washing station was later built.  Farms in the area cultivate coffee in sandy volcanic soil. Coffee is selectively hand-picked, fermented and washed using fresh water from the Ragati river, and meticulously sun-dried on raised beds.

The peaks of snow-capped famous Mt. Kenya are very visible from the factory, and the sprinkler irrigation taking place across the Ragati River on the famous Kibirigwi Irrigation Scheme, help to make the area particularly scenic.
