About This Coffee
Chinga puts on quite a show in the dry fragrance and wet aromatics, heavily weighted in layers of fruit, dark tea notes, and incredible sweetness. It's not overly acidic and citric per se, but like a watered-down blackberry juice, or black currant tea, brisk and mouth refreshing. Brightness is at a moderate level for Kenya, and strings together a wide swath of flavor hints like pomegranate, dark sugars, fresh fig, and some chai spice tea.
Chinga Factory was the second mill to be developed in the town of Othaya in 1960. "Factories" are essentially small washing stations aligned with a particular "society" in Kenya, what we would call a "cooperative". Othaya has been known for its quality for decades; we count ourselves lucky to be able to roast this wonderful coffee for you.
