The Kangurumai AB is a quintessential Kenyan coffee that embodies the classic profile of the region's coffees, known for its vibrant and complex flavors. Grown on the fertile slopes of the Aberdare Mountain range in Murang'a County, Kenya, this coffee benefits from the rich soils and ideal climatic conditions of the area. The Kangurumai Factory, part of the Kangiri Farmers Cooperative Society (FCS), is instrumental in producing this high-quality coffee. The society operates five factories including Kangurumai, and utilizes water from the nearby Kanyiriri spring for coffee processing, ensuring a sustainable approach to coffee production​.​​​​

This coffee is processed using the washed method, where cherries are hand-sorted to ensure only the ripe ones are delivered for processing. After pulping, the parchment is fermented overnight, washed, graded, and then dried on raised beds for 9-15 days. This meticulous process contributes to the coffee's distinctive taste profile. The Kangurumai AB features a variety of coffee beans including SL28, SL34, Batian, and Ruiru 11, grown at an elevation of around 1630 to 1650 meters above sea level (MASL). These factors combine to produce a coffee with a rich flavor palette that includes notes of lemon, tangelo, green apple Jolly Rancher, and winey dark berries.
