Murang'a is considered the traditional home of the Kikuyu tribe, which currently makes up 22 percent of Kenya's population. The area's beautiful red, loamy soil and startlingly high altitudes contribute to a juicy, berry-forward cup. These coffees are typically grown between 1,350 and 1,800 masl. Very high-quality coffees often derive from small co-ops and may be auctioned as separate lots.

 

All of Kenya's coffees are graded primarily by screen size (a measure of the size of the bean, with larger being more prized) immediately after milling. The coffees then proceed to the weekly auction at the Nairobi Coffee Exchange.

 

AA is the top grade based on screening. After grading, the quality distinction "Top" or "Plus" indicates that a minimal number of small defects were allowed, as long as they have no effect on the cup.
