When I first encountered Mamuto, I believe it was the best lot auctioned in Kenya that year. (All Kenyan coffee lots were auctioned through 2006; in 2008 the system was "liberalized," permitting direct sales as well as auction coffee).
In our first year of roasting this coffee, Mamuto received Coffee Review's first-ever score over 95. Mamuto has also previously scored 96, 97 and 96 Points respectively for crops from 2006, 2007 and 2008. We now have Mamuto's best lot from the most recent harvest. We purchased this lot directly and without hesitation; it was, again, one of the most outstanding lots we tried this past buying season and we have been privileged to always cup the cream of the crop!
Taking inspiration from their family, Mr. Mathagu explained to me, he and his wife named the farm by combining the first two letters from three words: his name, Mathagu, as the father; Muthoni, his wife's maiden name, as mother; and toto, meaning child or children in Swahili: thus Mamuto. Mr. and Mrs. Mathagu have six children - three boys, three girls
