We are privileged to offer this coffee from Muranga County, Kenya. It was grown by 1200 members of the New Gaturi Farmer’s Cooperative Society and processed at the Gachirago Factory (Kenyan washing station).
Like most Kenyan coffees, this lot is composed of two different varietals called SL 28 and SL 34. It was grown in ideal conditions – volcanic soil at 1400 masl within a geographical location with optimal weather patterns. This is a fully washed coffee with a long 72 hour fermentation, followed by being de-pulped and floated to identify defective beans, then washed for 24 hours, then to a second fermentation tank for another 12-24 hours, then finally dried on raised beds. The end result is dense, clean, and meticulously washed coffee beans.
The outcome in the cup is really fantastic. We taste grapefruit citrus, peachy stone fruits, all held together by a very pleasant chocolate character. It has a rich and creamy, full bodied mouthfeel, good acidity, and great complexity. We really love this coffee.
