A bright, kiwi acidity pairs perfectly with a sweetness similar to carrot juice that lingers like green tea.

Kiwi, Carrot Juice, Green Tea
Today, there are over 1,200 smallholder farmers in the Ruthaka Farmer’s Cooperative Society who supply freshly-picked coffee cherries to the factory. The farmers in this Southern Nyeri region grow a mixture of SL-28 and SL-34 in rich, sandy volcanic soil. The coffee is fully washed with fresh water from the Tana river and dried by the sun on a raised bed. The eastern slopes of Mount Kenya provide the small farms the perfect mixture of morning sun and cool nights. These ideal climates produce a bright, kiwi acidity with a sweetness similar to carrot juice that lingers like green tea.
I have been serious baout coffee for over 40 years and have brought many in to the fold.
Vereve coffees are always superior in every way. Ruithaka is one of them
Thank you so much, Richard! We're stoked you're enjoying Ruthaka.
Love it when a new variety is available
Great coffee! Discrepancy between bag sizes
I love this roast when i got the 12 oz bag. I was able to detect all the notes and especially the carrot juice. I then ordered the kilo but the carrot juice wasn’t as predominant compared to the 12 oz bag. It was rather hot on the commute over to Oregon so the heat could have affected the flavor profile. I did not notice a 1 way valve on the kilo bag compared to the 12 oz bag.
We believe the coffee experience is our responsibility from seed to cup. Coffee is our craft, our ritual, our passion. It drives us and inspires us. With this simple truth and responsibility we are bridging the gap from farmlevel to streetlevel.
