SO57.F

Regular price $20.00

Tastes Like:  Blackcurrant Jam, Floral, Peach Sweetness, Oolong Tea Syrupy Finish.

We love this Kenyan coffee it is strong, powerful and intensely-flavoured coffee with sharp acidity, winey, dark cocoa syrup rich finish.

Ideal for many of the slow-brewing methods such as a plunger, drip, stovetop, Aeropress, V60, Kona filter, etc where they will show higher flavours.

However, it will also work very well in espresso extraction or filter brewing where the clean rich cup will provide a long finish.

Twin Rivers Estate as the name suggests is a farm between two major rivers namely Athi and Thika River both of which act as the source of water for the farm. The farm has been managed by Tropical Farm Management Kenya since early 1980 and is located at the border of Thika and Machakos district in Donyo Sabuk. At an altitude around 1400m a.s.l, it is predominantly an early crop farm, however, renowned for its quality.


All coffees are wet-processed after selective handpicking courtesy to the well-trained workers, thereafter careful pulping is exercised followed by fermentation, soaking, grading and sun-drying resulting in a characteristic cup which is the specialty of Kenyan coffee. The improvement of the quality of the lower grades is a result of thorough hand sorting and milling at farm level, where it is bagged and sent straight to the central auction in Nairobi.

Our specialty (single) coffees are roasted from the highest-quality green coffee beans to their greatest flavor potential. All our specialty coffees are free of defects and have a distinctive character in the cup, with a score of 80 or above when graded according to SCAA Standards.

Once the beans are processed and delivered, our master roaster at 36P spends a considerable amount of time to understand the coffee and develop unique roast profiles.

After trying different profiles and cupping we decide on one profile that brings out the best out of that particular bean.

We roast all our specialty coffees in small batches to maintain freshness and monitor quality.

We develop our espresso roast coffee further in the roaster to increase the caramelisation and body, which suits being prepared on an espresso machine to extract delicious elixir.

Our filter roasted coffee has been less developed in order to retain more of the sparkling acidity that a filtered cup of brew desires.

Australia is currently experiencing one of the largest natural disasters in history. This year's fire season has brought about unprecedented destruction as wildfires have spread across every Australian state, burning up nearly 6 million hectares (15 million acres) of bush as of January 2020. But the devastation witnessed in the state of New South Wales is nearly unfathomable - 3.6 million hectares (8.8 million acres) have been lost, over 1,500 homes destroyed or damaged, and 24 people have been killed. New South Wales is home to some of the most iconic of Australia's wildlife - koalas, wombats, and kangaroos to name a few - and their habitat is rapidly declining.

Trees have been chosen that will bring the greatest overall benefit to the region. This includes various types of native trees and companion plants, depending on the specific needs of each section of habitat being restored across Australia.
