This wonderful, juicy lot comes to us from the Oreti estate by the Thika plateau. Estates are rare in Kenya, you’ll usually find cooperatives, called “factories”. At Oreti they have a permanent staff of 40 that have worked at the estate for years, perfecting their craft while cultivating their trees and coffee. The workers have a self-elected committee which meets monthly to discuss social, welfare, safety and health matters at the estate with management. All over Kenya, the “classic” profiles are changing due to climate change and new varieties being introduced to adjust to this. This lot from Oreti on the other hand is 100% SL28, the variety most associated with those big, bold and juicy profiles we love from Kenya. Expect a classic profile, from a modern estate.
