Organic Kenyan Coffee (Fair Trade)
Gorgeously serene and graced with the slightest cover of snow, Mount Kenya serves as a monument to nature's artistry. The once active volcano, reshaped and recontoured by thousands of years of glacial erosion, is the birthplace of One World Roasters' Kenyan Maganjo. The northeastern slope of the mountain provides the perfect conditions for growing exceptional and distinctive coffee beans with its ample exposure to sunlight and rainfall, as well as its uniquely rich and acidic soil.
These attributes make for a special coffee with characteristic African fruit and berry notes with a bright citrus twang on the tongue. This coffee is considered AA-grade in the Kenyan coffee rating system, which means these are the largest beans grown in Kenya and will yield the most complex, fruity, and flavorful cups of coffee.
Despite Ethiopia's long and rich history in the coffee growing industry (perhaps being the birthplace of coffee), the practice is relatively new to Kenya, having started in 1893, when the French Holy Ghost Fathers introduced the coffee plant to the country from Reunion Island. But the recentness of this development should not be mistaken for immaturity—Kenyan coffee farmers are so skilled and in-demand that their beans are often auctioned off at very costly prices to bidders around the world.
Unfortunately, political instability and an encroaching property market have put these talented coffee growers in a difficult position. Thus it is all the more important that we, as roasters and consumers of this magnificent coffee, always choose fair trade beans out of respect to their craftsmanship and well-being as fellow people.
