    This single origin coffee from Kenya is a blend of SL28 and SL34 varieties grown by the Thirikwa Farmers Cooperative Society in Gichugu. In the cup, we taste warm notes of sweet plum, vanilla and honey, with the sweetness lingering a moment longer.

    Try this lot as a filter roast as well.

    About the Coffee

    This coffee was produced by smallholder farmers, the Thirikwa Farmers Cooperative Society, and brought to the Gakuyuini wet mill (known locally as the "factory") near the towns of Kerugoya and Kianyaga in central Kenya.

    Gakuyuini (var. Gakuyu-ini) is the cooperative's only wet mill and is located at an altitude of 1,600 meters above sea level. The smallholder farmers who supply the mill come from the surrounding villages of Githiru, Gituba, and Mukure. Their small farms (most of which are mixed farming, with a mix of coffee trees - about 200-250 trees on average - and food crops) are located on the southern slopes of Mount Kenya at 1,500 to 1,900 meters above sea level. In African countries, coffee beans are sorted according to their size.

    About the Farm

    The cooperative has a total of 1835 members, of which 1,553 are active farmers. It is managed by 5 members.

    Coffee is a fruit which is naturally acidic and contains many sugars. We roast our espresso to develop a fine acidity and to bring out its natural sweetness.
