ONA Kenya Rukira, AB Washed - Espresso 200g
This espresso is a zippy, zesty ride that mellows out as the coffee glides over your young tongue and you are left with a sweet and floral linger. Bright flavours of slightly green pineapple and green apple are met with sencha tea and raw sugar.

For four years, ONA coffee has purchased the Rukira AB Washed. It stands out for us as a coffee that consistently delivers stunning citrus and stone fruit qualities anchored in a strong backbone of raw sugar cane styled sweetness. Its this richness in sweetness that allows the naturally bright acidity to sit more harmoniously in balance. This 2021 harvest is another pristine example that’s perfectly suited for espresso.
