The Story

Competition Coffees

This Nicaragua is only one of 4 competition coffees that we roasted for Golden Bean North America this year. You can purchase a set of all 4 coffees roasted by Eric, Sam and Kara here. 

Profitable Coffee Farms Around the World

Like most of our Kenyan coffees, we source this from our friends at Genuine Origin. They work with farmers around the world, implementing the Volcafe Way - a method of farming coffee that focuses on making coffee growers more profitable. 

Our Kiriga AB microlot comes from Kiriga Estate producer Dr. Brian Gakunga. Kiriga Estate has 133 acres of coffee coffee trees and sources water from River Chania which cuts across the farm. Dr. Gakunga inherited the farm from his grandfather who bought it from the British settlers.

Kiambu County is located in the Central highlands of Kenya in the former Central Province sharing its borders with five other counties; Nakuru and Kajiado to the West, Murang'a and Nyandarua to the North and Nairobi to the South.

Kiambu lies at the foot of The Aberdare Ranges named after Lord Aberdare in the 20th Century. It is source of many rivers including River Chania and poses homage to wildlife.
