This complex coffee boasts notes of dates, grapefruit, and maple syrup. Its vegetal acidity along with its full body makes for a well-rounded cup. Being such a meticulously sourced microlot, this crop of Ruthagati was sold out before it even left Kenya.
Some information from the importer - Red, ripe coffee cherries were selectively handpicked and were delivered for wet milling the same day. The parchment was fermented, washed and sun dried on raised beds, and the dry parchment was then milled and bagged. In 2005, the Ruthanga, Tumutumu and Marua farmers' cooperative societies merged to form the Rutuma Amalgamated Farmers' Co-Operative Society Limited. It now has seven wet mills, including the Ruthagai Factory in the Mathira region of Nyeri County. The Ruthagati mill is located on the northwest side of Mt. Kenya, and the farmers who bring their cherries here have, on average, 150 coffee trees each.
