Origin

Story

Located on the slopes of Mount Kenya at an elevation of 1,650 meters in Kirinyaga County, Danjoru was established in 2005 when Danson Njogu Njiru purchased his first piece of land and planted 3,000 trees of SL-28. Over the past few seasons, he has more than doubled that amount and has also planted a small amount of Ruiru 11. Danson was delivering his coffee to Rungeto Cooperative Society, a local cooperative close to his farm, until 2017 when he set up his private washing station at the farm, which gave him more ownership and control of the coffee’s quality. This lot represents his first attempt at coffee processing, and we are truly impressed with the quality that he has achieved. Counter Culture was introduced to Danjoru via the Kushikamana group, and this marks the first year that we have purchased coffee from Danson.
