Local, small batch roasted, veteran owned, Model Citizen Coffee Company brings you this Kenyan from the region of Nyeri, home to Mount Kenya, an extinct volcano. Kenyan coffee is one of the most sought-after coffees in the world. Kenya is known for intense flavors, rich body, pleasant aroma, notes of cocoa, berry undertones, and in your face acidity. The black currant note is distinct to Kenyan coffees. The Kenyan beans are Strictly High Altitude Grown (SHG) and have a Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) status. It’s no wonder it’s a worldwide favorite. This particular coffee is grown around 6,000 ft by the Ruarai Factory, located in Gakindu, Nyeri County. Named for the rock-filled Ruarai River, the Ruarai Factory is part of a farmer cooperative which has around 600 smallholder farmers.
The region's coffees are renowned for their bright, complex berry flavors with intense acidity and sweetness.
