This rich and intense coffee is from the Ndiara factory of Kenya. The factory is located in a northern corner of Muranga county, in the Mathioya division, and operated by the Kiru Farmers Cooperative Society. With a candy-like aroma, this coffee boasts hints of toffee and baker's chocolate with a tart plum acidity.
The V60 was designed in Japan and the name comes from the vector 60, or the 60º angle of its cone. This easy to use and elegant brewer is the go-to for many home coffee enthusiasts because it makes a great cup no matter the coffee.
The Ndiara factory was established on a 2-acre piece of land in 1999, and serves farmers from Kiriani, Kiogini, Mathioya, Kagioini, and Kagumoini villages in Muranga, Kenya. Ndiara is one of four factories operated by the Kiru Farmers Cooperative Society or F.C.S. and has about 400 active members. The F.C.S. is focused on improving the infrastructure of its factory system, and has invested in grading tables, better drying beds, and advanced depulping equipment. There is also one water-soaking pit that's used to purify the water used during the coffee's processing, to avoid contamination with fresh water.
Kenyan coffees are carefully graded after harvest. The coffee beans are sorted and rated by size as well as shape, color, and density. The general assumption is that bigger coffee beans are higher in quality as they have more essential oils that enhance tastes and aromas. The largest coffee beans from Kenya are just over 1/4 inch in diameter and graded Kenya AA.
