Blackcurrant Karii

Pucker up - this is a staggeringly juicy coffee from the Karii washing station in Kenya. It's positively bursting with flavours of ripe blackcurrant and sunny citrus fruits, drizzled with sweet notes of honey.

We roast coffee fresh to order every Tuesday. Please order before 9am on Tuesday for delivery by the weekend.

What does it taste like?

This coffee's fruity, tangy and a tiny bit sweet. It's a brilliant example of the juicy acidity that Kenyan coffee is so famous for - and what made us fall in love is how clearly it tastes like blackcurrants.

The washed process makes a big difference here: washing off every part of the coffee cherry before drying the beans means that the fruity flavour profile is really clean and bright.

Meet the grower

We've got a great relationship with the Mutira Co-op. We funded some quality new high quality metal coffee drying beds which has helped them make better coffee - and more of it. And our Sourcing Academy (staff from all parts of our company, not just coffee buyers) visited in 2017 to meet some of the farmers in person.
