This natural coffee undergoes a 5 day fermentation in airtight bags prior to being dried on raised beds. The limited oxygen ferment plays with the cup profile creating unique and fragrant flavors of: apricot, kiwi, prune, tangerine, chocolate, and sugar cane.
Imani Natural comes from the John Reuben Estate in Kiambu county, Kenya, north of Nairobi. Established in the early 1900s by British settlers, the farm was acquired by the Mbugua family in 1967. After a time the farm was renamed John Reuben Estate after the original visionary of the family farm. The farm is now run by Derek Mbugua, the grandson of John Reuben.
This coffee was cultivated on a plot of land originally intended to become a gas station. However, Derek's cousin and founder of Jamii Coffee, Francis Kungu, convinced him to renovate the coffee on the land instead. The two have been working together for the past two years to revive the land and this beautiful coffee is the result of that work.
