Kenya Peaberry Zawadi

£5.75£16.00

Like many peaberry coffees, PB Zawadi (Zawadi, meaning “Gift” in Kiswahili) is a rich, flavourful rarity. Our beans come from various co operatives whose average farm size is only 1- 2 acres. It is grown in the highlands of Central Kenya, then most of the cherries are brought to the Kamandi and Ndia-ini coffee hubs where they carefully select the peaberries that form this great product.

Ndia-ini lies 5km from Mukurwe-ini and uses water fresh from the Gikira river for processing. The proximity of the river gives the processing centre its name which translates to ‘river ponds’ in the Kikuyu language. Kimandi is situated in the village of the same name, close to Kabare town

Peaberry is different to the normal coffee bean in that the fruit (cherry) of the coffee plant contains two beans that develop with flattened facing sides, but sometimes only one of the two beans is fertilized, and the single seed develops with nothing to flatten it. This oval (or pea-shaped) bean is known as peaberry. Typically around 5% of all coffee beans harvested are classified as a peaberry.

Description

Medium Roast

Kenya’s trademark taste is one of strong flavours, thanks in part to the fact that they are grown without shade. When brewed, this washed coffee’s balanced taste is found to be sweet as well as juicy, a bit like chocolate and raisins.
