Our third year with Ivory is not an easy one. Kenya had a difficult season due to weather conditions. On top of this, the family had to suffer a tragic loss. We are very happy to support the three brothers of the Miguongo family that are locally accompanied by our partner. Ivory Estate sits on the border of Kirinyaga and Embu, on the slopes of Mount Kenya. Surrounded by well-known washing stations such as Kii, the Miguongo family decided to go solo to present their own unique flavour profile: Notes of blackberry and cane sugar with great sweetness. The cup is jammy with a medium body.
Migungo is the Kikuyu name for Elephant Tusk. The farm was established back in 1959 after the native Africans were allowed to plant a maximum of 100 coffee trees. Originally, the farm was located at a lower elevation where coffee could not grow well. The owners love for coffee saw him swap his lower elevation piece of land with a five acre high elevation farm on the slopes of Mount Kenya in the current day Kirinyaga County.
