BeanFruit Coffee's Kenya Muiri Estate is a solidly flavorful roast. With a full, rounded body and a smooth, piquant mouthfeel, this coffee is thoroughly fruity and mildly spicy. BeanFruit's offering comes from the Muiri Estate in Thika, Kenya. The rural town is well-known for its prime pineapple exports and sits around 25 miles outside of Nairobi, Kenya's capital. Consisting of Kenya's famous SL-28, SL-34, and Ruiru 11 varietals, this coffee is of a unique Bourbon varietal that is known for an intense balance of citrus and sweetness to the cup.
This coffee was a pleasant drinker, and performed beautifully in a French Press (my personal brewing method of choice) as well as in a pour-over. Highlights of the coffee included notes of black cherry and blood orange finished by fragrant undertones of cardamom and cinnamon.
