Chania Estate is named after the Chania river that runs along one of its boundaries. Owned by the Harries family, who have resided in Thika since 1904, the estate is located on a plateau surrounded by deep river valleys. The soil is a deep red color, rich in nutrients ideal for growing coffee.
This lot is made up of a mix of all the varieties that grow on the farm: French Mission, Ruiru 11, Batian, & SL14 & 28. Its ‘C’ grade is a denotation of bean size and includes beans 5.5mm and up. Sorting coffees by size creates different flavor profiles and makes it easier to get an even roast. C grade coffees are very balanced and mild in flavor.
Roasting days: Proud Mary roast Monday-Friday during normal business hours. To ensure freshness of coffee, best to order early in the week as postal services and couriers do not operate on weekends.
Orders: placed by 8.00am PST will be roasted and dispatched the same day. If you are ordering on a Friday, and order after 8.00am then your coffee will be roasted the following business day - Monday.
