    About the coffee

    A fruity profile with notes of raspberry, passion fruit and blackcurrant.
    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.

    The Farm | Thirikwa Cooperative Society

    The Thirikwa Cooperative Society consists of 1,553 smallholders, including 674 women. Around 250 tonnes of cherries are harvested and processed per season. The cooperative is represented externally by five elected members.
    The common wet mill is about 130 kilometres from Nairobi City. There are two collection points to which the cherries can be brought if the way to the washing station is too far for the farmers.
    The cherries are picked fresh by hand by the farmers every day and then taken directly to the mill for processing. There the cherries are sorted so that they can be washed with clean, clear river water in the next step. For drying, the cherries are placed on raised beds in the sun before they are delivered to the drying mill for further processing.

    for several years
    The cooperative has a total of 1835 members, of which 1,553 are active farmers.

    About the farm

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

    Gakuyuini (var. Gakuyu-ini) is the only wet mill in the cooperative and is located at an altitude of 1,600 metres 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 mixture 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 metres above sea level. In African countries, coffee beans are graded according to size.

    Bloody Good Coffee

    - SINCE 2002

    Bloody Good Filter

    Coffee is a fruit which is naturally acidic and contains many sugars. We roast our filter coffees to bring out this acidity and develop the natural sweetness.

    In developing a profile for a filter roast, our roasting team takes a light-handed approach, roasting much more gently than in an espresso roast. Here, the aim is to respect and highlight the natural flavours of the coffee itself, and to let its terroir shine through.
