Our Medium-Light roast on this Kenya brings out a nice brightness, juicy cup, medium body with sweetness of brown sugar and plum.
About the Coffee: This coffee comes from a number of smallholder farmers in the Mt. Kenya Region, each of who farm about 150 coffee trees. Mount Kenya is the tallest mountain in Kenya, and the second tallest in Africa, after Kilimanjaro. This coffee is named after Mt. Kenya's second-highest peak, Lenana -- a visit to which will take an adventurous climber past rainforest, moorlands, gorges and jagged peaks. On a clear day, the summit of Kilimanjaro is visible from Lenana, 200 miles across the savannah. The farmers here deliver their just-picked red cherry to cooperative wet mills, which disc pulp, ferment, wash and then sun dry the coffee on elevated drying tables.
Drink Coffee. Feed Hungry Kids.
When you buy a bag of Blue Jazz Coffee from any of our available outlets, you are also paying for a meal for a child in need. For every bag of coffee that leaves our warehouse we purchase a meal for one of our kids through a close partnership with Trash Mountain Project. To date, we have been able to provide over 112,000 meals through the program.
We love that you guys allow us to make this type of commitment on your behalf. If you're not with us yet, come along for a great ride. We firmly believe that it's good to be a part of things much bigger than ourselves. Problems that are seemingly unsolvable can be solved if enough of us do a small part in the bigger story.
