    The Coffee: Elevate your coffee experience with our exquisite Kenyan blend, sourced from small farm owners organized into local cooperatives. This fully washed coffee, grown at altitudes of 1520-1690m on rich volcanic soil, features a harmonious mix of SL28, SL34, Ruiru 11, and Batian varietals. The beans are meticulously processed, washed, and dried on raised beds to ensure a consistently exceptional cup. Delight in the fruity, well-balanced, and bright flavors that define this remarkable coffee.

    The Inspiration: This coffee takes its name from Aldous Huxley's groundbreaking novel, Brave New World, in which "soma" is a government-issued drug that provides a sense of blissful contentment to the citizens of a dystopian future society. Our Sip of Soma, however, offers a natural and invigorating alternative – a truly outstanding Kenyan coffee that uplifts and energizes without compromising on quality or flavor. Just as the novel prompts readers to question the status quo and seek authentic experiences, our coffee encourages you to explore the vibrant and diverse world of specialty coffee.
