COFFEE FOR A CAUSE

Nguvu is a blend of coffees from smallholder cooperatives in the Murang’a district, in Kenya’s Central Province. This crop comes from Ruthaka Kamuchuni, Ruthaka Mukui, Mwirua Riakiania, Mwirua Kiambwe (the first part of the name is the cooperative and the second part is the factory, or mill).
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.
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. AA is the top grade based on screening.
