Ethiopia is the birthplace of some beautiful and unique coffees, and Arsoala is no exception.

While most coffee from this part of the world is a mix of wild and unspecified varieties labelled ‘Heirloom’, Arsoala has been carefully cultivated from Typica and Bourbon varieties, which are more commonly found in Central America. The washing station where it comes from comprises of around 1,200 smallholder producers who take their coffee seriously.

Only the ripest cherries are picked then de-pulped and dried for anywhere between 8 to 20 days, depending on the sun and rate of moisture loss. This results in the wonderfully unique but also distinctly Ethiopian coffee that you enjoy today.

Varietal: SL-28, SL-34

As one of the older coffee farms in Kiambu County, Nyala estate is ideally situated for quality coffee production. Its high altitude and warm climate creates the perfect temperature range for growing the beans that we have come to know and love.

This shows in this coffee, with its juicy mouthfeel and clean, fruity flavour that make for an interesting espresso. Like most estates in Kiambu, Nyala is passionate about coffee production, and their attention to detail is second to none.

One thing that sets this estate apart from others is its size. As a larger estate, Nyala has scope to invest more in technology that drives quality. This coffee is great as an espresso, but can also be enjoyed with a dash of hot water or as a long black.
