  • The Windrush Estate is run by approximately 300 Kenyan shareholders, who in the 1970s purchased the farm from a British settler. Rather than divide up
    the property, they kept it whole and have a board of directors and a manager who oversees the estate.

    The coffee trees on the property are between 50 and 70 years old, and the great majority are SL 28. The estate owns its own washing station, where cherries are milled with river water that’s re-circulated before it’s disposed of in seepage pits. Before the coffee is delivered to the dry mill for secondary processing, it’s dried in the sun on traditional raised beds. The estate also grows tea. Tea trees cover the valley and slopes, and coffee trees stand on the top of a ridge.

  • We're roasting this Kenya coffee on the lighter side. It brings out the unique acidity and fantastic bright notes that are so common in Kenyan coffees. If you're into really unique, flavorful, light roast coffees, we'd highly recommend this one. 

    If you're using this in a pour over like the Hario V60, start with 22g of coffee ground a little finer than drip. It should look like table salt. On our Baratza Virtuosso, the setting is between 15 and 17. It should take between 1:45 and 2 minutes to brew 350g of water.
