Kenya Kairima

Raspberry, Honey, Candied orange

Kairima is the result of a multi-generational, family collaboration led by entrepreneurs Edwin and Mary Kamau. The couple is new to specialty coffee, and the quality of Karima’s harvests is a reflection of their ambition: each cup is vibrant and honeyed with notes of raspberry and candied citrus.

ABOUT THE COFFEE

Kenya Kairima

Sorting green coffee beans

Edwin and Mary farm their land alongside Edwin’s mother, Rahab, and brother, Samuel; Kairima is a blend of lots from each of their three plots. Their shared washing station sits on Rahab’s plot, a short walk from the original family house. Though they’re new to specialty production and farming practices, the Kamaus have been producing coffee since the 1950s.

In our first eighteen months of working together, we’ve cultivated a dialogue centered on quality. Last winter, Edwin and Samuel joined us at our exporter’s lab: Edwin took part in his first cupping, and a 2020 harvest Kairima lot was the undisputed favorite on the table. We hope to build a long-lasting relationship with the Kamaus, and look forward to our next opportunity to cup with them again.

Sorting green coffee beans

This limited 2019 harvest is our first purchase from Kairima. It’s been stored in a climate-controlled facility to preserve its peak flavor. We were bowled over by this coffee’s sweetness when we first cupped it, and we hope you’ll find it as delicious as we do.

Its release marks the publication of ​Parchment​ Volume 002. Enjoy them both in good company.
