The Nchengo Estate in south-west Kenya has a long and rich history of growing coffee. Coffee was originally planted on the estate in 1933 by the Coffee Board of Kenya, before being bought by the Kinyua family, who have owned and worked on the estate for the last four generations.

The estate is located on the Ndarugu river which provides plenty of irrigation for the farm, as well as contributing to a uniquely temperate and humid environment, conducive to growing some truly stunning coffees. This particular lot was bought directly from Mr. Kinyua by our friends at Elephant Coffee Importers, and is an excellent example of a classic Kenyan flavor profile. Look out for big, juicy blackcurrant notes, intense florals, bright acidity and a slight savoury complexity. Kenyan coffees are some of our favorites here at Switchback, and this is certainly one of the best ones we have tasted this season.
