The Rumukia Farmers’ Cooperative Society produced this coffee at their Rumania Milling Plant located high on the arable slopes of Mt. Kenya, Africa’s second highest peak (17,057’). The members in this area continue to cultivate several of the classic Kenyan SL arabica varieties which bring a saturated fruity quality to this carefully double washed process coffee.
The Rumukia Double offers up an absolutely classic Kenyan profile.
After repose, we seal this coffee in Grain-Pro barrier packaging in Kenya and then send on its way to our Roastery where we preserve the green coffee under hermetic seal until it is roasted as part of our Barrington Green Seal Program© .
