With fresh notes of Blackcurrant, Candied Lilac, and Lime Juice, this lot from the Kiri Factory in Kirinyaga is bursting with ripe, ripping, sugary acidity. 

From the importer:

"Kiri Factory is run by Ngiriambu Farmers Cooperative Society (FCS). Members of Ngiriambu FCS cultivate SL28 and SL34 varieties on small coffee gardens that are typically less than 1 hectare. Over 3,555 members deliver cherry to the station, and the Ngiriambu Factory takes every action to preserve the exceptional quality of the cherry.

Farmers delivering to Kiri cultivate primarily SL28 and SL34 in small coffee gardens that are, on average, smaller than 1 hectares, selectively handpicking ripe cherry to deliver to the Kiri Factory. At intake, the Cherry Clerk oversee meticulous visual sorting and floating, accepting only dense, ripe cherry.

After intake, cherry is pulped and fermented for approximately 24 to 36 hours. Following fermentation, coffee is washed in clean water and soaked for 24 hours. Then, parchment is laid to dry on raised beds, with workers raking parchment frequently to ensure even drying. They cover drying parchment during the hottest time of the day to maintain slow even drying, and at night to shelter parchment from moisture. It takes approximately 20 days for parchment to dry."

Frequently Asked Questions

When Will My Order Ship?

We roast Monday through Friday, and most orders ship the next roast day from when they are placed.

The only exception is any pre-order item, which will ship on the date stated on that item's pre-order page.

Do You Have Recommendations For Brewing?


First, we recommend a brewing ratio of about 1:17. So whatever your dose of coffee is for a brew (we recommend weighing your coffee in grams), multiply that number by 17, and use that weight of water to brew.

Second, always try to grind your coffee fresh, directly before you brew. This will significantly impact the flavor.

Lastly, and maybe most important, always use the highest quality water you can. Filtered is always best. Coffee is 98.5% water, so the water you use makes a huge difference.

Any other questions? Just drop us a line.

Is ReAnimator Coffee Organic/Fair Trade?

While some of our coffees may happen to be certified organic or fair trade, we do not specifically look for either of these certifications when sourcing coffees, and do not market them as such.

All of our coffees are bought at fixed prices above the c-market, and 99% of the time we are paying higher prices than the Fair Trade Certified price.

Our sourcing goals are always quality and flavor focused, and we buy from producers and importers we trust to provide us with coffee that fits into our ideology.
