RIBENA. BOURNVILLE. PLUM CLAFOUTIS.
Situated on the North-Eastern border with neighbouring Kenya and Mount Kilimanjaro in sight this is a super vibrant coffee from a land of serene panoramic views and diverse culture. The dormant stratovolcano, Africa’s tallest peak, provides the surrounding land with complex minerals that influence the soil’s fertility. This, in turn, creates a remarkable coffee that is a real product of its terroir. High altitude growth, generally, creates the fruitier notes in speciality grade coffee. Expect burts of blackcurrant cordial tamed with an intensity of dark cocoa.
Tempting as it may be we suggest not serving this volcanic coffee at lava like temperatures. The perfectly formed filter coffee can be enjoyed at its optimum sweetness around 55℃.

Bourbon & Kent
The Full Story
Coffee farmers unite to make up the Uru Cooperative Society and Tujitume Cooperative (AMCOS) and export to us under the name ‘Yetu Tamu’ meaning our coffee is sweet. That sweetness is always, for us, a guiding light in green coffee procurement. The varieties of arabica grown on this farm are Bourbon and Kent. The former yielding those sweet, citric notes and the latter providing leaf rust resistance as a form of protection to the coffee harvest which takes place between July and October. It's quite a stunner and we cannot wait for you to it.
