Karimikui washing station is situated in Kirinyaga county on the southern highlands of Mt Kenya, where the red volcanic soil and good rainfall distribution provide a conducive environment for growing the coffee. The factory was built in 1966.Karimikui is part of the Rung'eto Cooperative society together with Kii and Kiangoi. The factory has 2200 active members whose land average is 0.1 hectares. The predominant variety within the region is SL28, SL34 and Batian. These small scale farms lie in Gituba and Kithure villages that are within an altitude of 1600 to 1700m above the sea level. Most of these farmers grow tea as well within the same farms and also keep livestock that produce milk and eggs for subsistence use, the organic manure from the livestock is used in the coffee farms.The farmers pick the ripe coffee berries and deliver to the factory for pulping upon which it is processed using the dry fermentation for 24 hours in an enclosed shade. Thereafter, the coffee is fully washed with fresh water that is tapped from inside the Mt Kenya forest. The coffee is then dried on raised beds.

First of all, when the package came in the mail I could SMELL the coffee just holding it. It smelled divine! I kept sniffing it before I even opened the packaging.
Second, I was very disappointed to not taste it. But it was supposed to be a gift. I was severely tempted to just keep it. However, my wonderfully fabulous boss has been very overworked and I don't want him to quit and then be replaced with a boss from hell. Seriously, the other two locations have hell bosses. I don't want that. So, this was part of my ongoing endeavor to make him feel appreciated and never leave because I would be big sad. And he said it tasted great, so thanks for the help Mad Priest. Shout Out to best Boss Jim!
This is our favorite coffee
This has been my favorite coffee for many years now. I will continue to purchase.
A good roast that we enjoyed
Dang, this is good. I can never look back to store-bought coffee (which is why I buy the 5 lb. bags).
Awesome Expresso Shots!!
Perfect blend for your morning coffee!
So soft and fits well! Always get asked about what the shirt so get to tell them about Mad Priest Coffee!

I love a light roast/ breakfast blend type coffee in the morning. Sloth dispelling is the best and believe me I have tried ever one sold at both grocery stores and my local coffee shop. It is an amazing brew! Try buying whole bean and grind it yourself like I do for extra good morning coffee!
I hadn't tried a coffee from Peru for a while but wanted to try something new. When I drank this for the first time, I noticed just how smooth and silky it was without a lot of acidity. This is a perfect coffee for your regular morning drink, or also if you tend to share coffee with friends (I share with my coworkers), this is a great choice. It's so good and well rounded that even the "I only drink natural process coffees from Africa" crowd will be pleased, and the "I only drink the darkest roast available" crowd will get to experience something new and eye opening without being turned off from too much acidity. It's on my regular order list now because I enjoy it so much!
I love a variety of coffees as long as they are great quality.. Mad Priest has never disappointed! So delicious!
I have the Benediction Espresso Blend on automatic re-order. It's the best I've found for my morning latte. Thanks, Mad Priest Coffee!
Love it! Smooth and delicious.
