Kiriga AB

Dr Brian Gakunga has had a long history with coffee. Having inherited the Kiriga Estate from his father in 2014 he’s taken charge of not only the coffee farming, but also founded the Kenya Coffee Producers Association. He’s also the former chairman of the Nairobi Coffee Exhange, where over 90% of Kenyan coffee is traded.

With a wealth of experience in coffee, it’s lead him to produce fantastic lots, of which we buy a few of each year.

This lot is an AB grade, which is the second largest bean size you’ll find on the farm. The coffees are graded by sifting through a stack of colander-like trays that get smaller as you go down. The largest doesn’t necessarily mean the best, but often there is some correlation to quality. In this case we found the AB to be equally as tasty as the AA.
