Morris Coffee Co is happy to welcome you to the Peaberry family!
This roast tastes amazing. It's got a citrusy zing that sets it apart from my previous roast, Wheelbarrow. It is very bright upfront with a strong citrus floral edge, almost a lemony acidity. Balanced with complex bakers chocolate undertone, one can tell its a Kenyan bean upon first sip. All sorts of little spice and herbal tones come out of the chocolaty factor. The herbal tones are on the stronger side and are usually what separates a Kenyan roast from other regions.
Morris Coffee Co Peaberry comes from a family owned farm organized around the Karumandi Factory (wet mill) located in Kirinyaga County, Kenya, a growing region in the fertile foothills of Mount Kenya. Farmer plots are so small that measurements are based on the numbers of trees, not area of land. Farmers who process their coffee at the Karumandi Factory are members of the Baragwi Farming Cooperative Society, which was established in 1953 and has 16,892 members. Baragwi supports a women’s group called the Mount Kenya Project, which was implemented to improve quality of life through socio-economic projects aimed at reducing poverty and increasing business knowledge in rural communities.
As with all my roasts, I work with these co ops to purchase and deliver only the finest selection of these imported beans. I roast this particular bean at 240F for 35 minutes, resulting in a rich darkness that I promise you will enjoy.
