Karindundu factory is situated just outside of Karatina town, in the Nyeri district. Like many other Kenya coffees we carry, it is a "factory" that is part of a much larger cooperative society (including other factories we carry like Gatomboya, and Gaturiri). Several hundred small farmers in the surrounding area are members, delivering coffee cherry to the Karindundu wet mill where their coffee is then processed onsite. So much effort is put into preparation, which is apparent when you cup these coffees. It also helps that the varietal is the much coveted SL-28 and SL-34 strains. AB refers to the bean size, a screen range of 15 - 17 screen.

The dry fragrance of Karindundu is characterized by a smell of dried citrus peel, orange and lemon, and a subdued unrefined sugar sweetness. It's a sweet smelling coffee and a cinnamon spice note comes with the addition of hot water, the wet aromatics marked by spiced hints, and a smell of berry compote. There's a juiciness that is alluded to in the aroma that is a nice precursor to the cup to come. Pink grapefruit juice is both tasted and felt in terms of acidity and mouthfeel, and a mixture of plum and white grape juice flavors follow. The cup flavors are focused, and don't shift around a lot as the coffee cools. Black tea and caramel notes mingle in the finish along with a flavor of orange water, and black tea notes linger in the aftertaste, adding to a brisk, clean finish. Karindundu's profile holds up to moderate roast levels, but I wouldn't take roast development too far south of Full City.
