About Kenya Rukira PB

Nyeri County has cool temperatures and fertile central highlands, lying between the Eastern base of the Aberdare Range, which forms part of the Eastern end of the Great Rift Valley and the Western slopes of Mt. Kenya. The combination of fertile soil, seasonal rainfall and high altitude provide the ideal climate for coffees characterised by high acidity, full body and ripe fruit flavours.

Rukira wetmill is part of Othaya Farmers’ Cooperative Society Limited, one of a few washing stations that form the coop group based in the heartland of Nyeri. The mill processes coffee cherries sourced from 676 farmers. The total farmed area is 128.4 acres with individual trees yielding between 5 & 10kg of cherries per season.

This particular lot sparked our interest because of it's intense sweetness and clear fruit flavors, inherent in these exclusive peaberry cherries. Expect flavor notes of black/red currant, plum and sweet sugar cane-like mouthfeel.

How this works

Simply select how often you want to receive coffee and we’ll ship it to you based on your choice. It's really that easy. You can change or cancel your subscription anytime.

Shipping & Delivery

If you order before noon we will dispatch your package the same business day. Located in the Netherlands? You should receive your order within 24-48 hours. Rural and international deliveries typically take a little longer and should be with you in 2-5 days.

Note: due to COVID-19 restrictions, delivery is expected to take between 1-2 days longer depending on your location.

December: As the holiday season approaches and we all begin to send treats to our loved ones, the couriers get a little run off their feet. The inevitable delays have begun, so to ensure your presents make it under the tree, be sure to order before Friday 20th December.

Shipping Rates

Shipping costs are calculated automatically at checkout. We offer complimentary shipping for orders of €20 and above within the Netherlands. We normally ship via PostNL and often UPS, depending on your location. Deliveries within Amsterdam are powered by the lightning fast delivery service from Foodlogica.

All-Day Favorites

Before we turn on the coffee roaster in the morning, there's one thing we just can't go without.. music. We curated several playlists for you to enjoy while sipping. Some are perfect to relax and wind down, others can get a bit loud and noisy from time to time. Some have even been put together by the farmers we collaborate with. Keep on rocking in the free world!
