Kenya Kiambu Fram Farm AB
Prescription Coffee Lab
Kenya Kiambu Fram Farm AB is following up a couple of stellar Kenyan offerings so far this year, and it does not disappoint. This quintessential Kenyan offers a strong presence of winey berry notes, lively citrus, and intense sweetness.
This Kenyan offering is particularly interesting, as it is from a single estate rather than a cooperative. That means that it is coming from a single producer, and thusly the purchasing of the coffee from the farm goes directly to owener and family. Fram Farm is owned and managed by the Kariruki family, James, the farmer got his start in coffee through a small plot he inherited from his grandfather. Now at 40, James has expanded their farm to nearly 30 hectares, the entirety planted in SL-28, and sitting at roughly 1850 meters above sea level. Kiambu lies near the foothills of Gatamaiyo Forest Reserve, and at the border of neighboring Muranga County.
