We had to wait patiently this year for our Kenyan coffees, but they are finally here and well worth the wait.

The Gichathaini factory is one of three washing stations that comprise the Gikanda Farmers Cooperative Society, which is in the Mathira West district of Nyeri. The factory itself is owned by the farmers who deliver their cherries here: There are about 1,045 registered members and 770 active members who utilize the mill and, subsequently, are able to make elective decisions regarding factory representation and management. The factory is located about 6 kilometers from Karatina town, and the conditions in the area are typically ideal for coffee: abundant rainfall, reliable average temperatures, fertile soil, and fresh water from the Ragati river.

Roasted for filter brewing, this coffee is another fine example of everything we love about Kenyan Coffee.

Super fruity! Reminding us of Blackcurrant + stewed fruit, held together by a caramel sweetness.
