Nyeri Hill is a single Kenya farm. This is an important distinction as many Kenya coffees are named for a washing station and are comprised of several regional farms. So we get a fairly unique degree of traceability here.
The Estate is owned and managed by the Catholic Archdiocese of Nyeri. It kind of makes me think of how lots of really great beers come from Catholic monasteries. Not that this is a monastery, I just mean it is cool to see how faith and quality often go hand in hand.
Anyway, this farm has an ideal coffee elevation of 1600 - 2200 meters above sea level, boasts some great post-volcanic soil, and maintains its own wet and dry mill. All of this spells the ability to produce a product with quality at every stage.
