Top Mutitu

Juicy Kenyans

We heard you - since we ran out of Ruarai, we've been missing a Kenyan coffee too. To remedy that, we're bringing back an old favorite.

Top Mutitu has lots of sweetness reminiscent of mango, some familiar blackcurrants and a hint of lime. The coffee has a high flavor intensity and a really nice body - while maintaining transparency and balance.

Quality and care

Mutitu Coffee Factory is located in the Kirinyaga area at the foot of Mount Kenya.

The washing station was built in 1963, but in recent years they have worked hard to raise the quality of their coffee to the absolute highest level.

Recently, the washing station has changed production to ensure the area's water supply.

The farmers also plant trees such as banana and macadamia next to their coffee bushes to provide shade, promote biodiversity and benefit from the extra crop.

A break with tradition

Mutitu Coffee Factory, where Top Mutitu is produced, was created out of the need for local collaboration. The small coffee farmers in the nearby area - more than 1200 of them - stand together to ensure fair payments and fight against the risk of being cheated by middlemen.

The washing station, run by Saweri Karimi, ensures that the small coffee farmers are paid as soon as they deliver their coffee berries, rather than waiting until the coffee is ready - as is the tradition in Kenya.

They also benefit from other aspects of working together, such as sharing knowledge about agriculture and land management.
