In the lush green highlands of Kenya, nestled amidst the rolling hills of the Nyeri region, lies the Kenya Muthuaini Coffee Factory. The name "Muthuaini" itself sparks curiosity as it derives from the Kikuyu language, meaning "a place with many ants." In the past, the location was indeed plagued by an army of ants that would often sneak into the sugarcane plantation, wreaking havoc for the residents. But the allure of this fertile land was undeniable. The tenacious locals never gave up, and along with their unwavering determination, made this land a coffee-loving community that produces some of the best coffee in the world.

Today, the ant problem is but a distant memory. The Kenya Muthuaini Coffee Factory stands tall as a symbol of resilience and passion for their craft. Drawing fresh water from the Thuta River, the factory employs an ingenious process to ferment their coffee beans, enhancing their delightful flavors. Once pulled, the beans are sun-dried on raised beds, basking under the warm African sun. 

This unique story, intertwined with the playful legacy of ants and the dedication of the local farmers, infuses each cup with a touch of magic. So, the next time you savor a cup of Nostalgia’s Kenya Nyeri coffee, let your imagination wander back to the whimsical tales of Muthuaini and raise your cup to a truly delightful coffee adventure.

    I'm impressed

    What makes or breaks a coffee for me is longevity. Many coffees rated highly by Coffee Review are wonderful when the bag is first opened but they begin to fade during the three weeks it takes me to finish the batch. But this Kenya Muthua held its quality till the end. I enjoy coffees with a complex mix of flavors, something I can roll around in my mouth and savor to the fullest. This is one of those coffees. This was my first order from Nostalgia. Service was first rate. I'll be back! Thanks Nostalgia.

    Does not taste like review says...

    Coffee is supposed to be light roast, but appears to be medium-dark. It is difficult to believe I was shipped the same coffee that was highly rated on

    Roaster King

    The Kenya was luscious and smooth. The roast is amazing, a perfect lighter roast. Your roaster investment was definitely worth it!
