Rob Says: One of our most legendary coffees is back at Caffenation. In October 2012 our head roast Jeff Verellen became Aeropress World Champion. For the first and the only time ever the organizers of the WAC asked the participants to bring a Kenyan coffee and roast of their own choice. We brought with us the Karimikui …… and a reserve bag of Thunguri. 9 hours before the start of the competition, in the middle of the night we were testing the Thunguri in our hotel room and there and then decided to set the Karimikui aside and go to stage with the …. THUNGURI.
Finally Jeff unanimously won all 3 rounds at the WAC finals and everybody wanted a bag of this great coffee.
Since that day we kept on dreaming about this legendary Thunguri bean, but never had a chance of buying some again. Either way we could not find it or in the other case someone else bought it before we could lay our hands on it; till today.
Nevertheless buying 9 lots directly from Kenya we couldn’t withstand to start the year with the all time classic, sourced by our friends of Trabocca.
