Grind:
One of our first Kenyan coffees that blew us away in 2012 was from the Kagumoini factory so naturally we weren't surprised when this came up as a top scorer in a blind tasting.  We have a limited amount of this lot so grab a bag while it's available!

NOTE: We aim to despatch all orders placed before 8am the very same day. Orders received on Fridays after 8am will be roasted and despatched the following Monday.
