Discover the exquisite Ngugu-Ini Factory Peaberry Coffee, hailing from the enchanting Kirinyaga County in Kenya. This exceptional coffee embodies a rich legacy, originating from the esteemed Ngugu-Ini Coffee Factory, a thriving establishment since 1958. Nestled in the heart of central Kenya, Ngugu-Ini plays a vital role within the esteemed Kibirigwi Farmers’ Cooperative Society, a community of around 1200 devoted farmers.
Distinguished by its peaberry nature, Ngugu-Ini presents a captivating twist. Unlike conventional coffee beans, which typically consist of two flat-sided seeds within the cherry, peaberries stand apart. They emerge when a single seed matures, resulting in a solitary, rounded bean. This rare occurrence imparts a unique flavor profile to the coffee, culminating in a delightful and sought-after option for aficionados.
Upon indulging, brace yourself for an invigorating gustatory journey. Unveil an intricate medley of flavors, highlighted by the lively essence of candied grapefruit acidity. A harmonious sweetness accompanies this, carrying hints of fruity and floral notes akin to tea, while subtle undertones reminiscent of wine elegantly waltz across your palate. Each sip offers an unforgettable escapade into flavor, leaving an indelible imprint.
