Gathaithi Farmers’ Cooperative
It’s Kenya season! We couldn’t think of a better way to kick it off than with this AA from Gathaithi Farmers’ Cooperative in Nyeri County. Located at high altitude with rich volcanic soil, this producer has all the environmental tools needed to cultivate exceptional coffee – and they deliver. Gathaithi is very consistent and wows us with every harvest. This AA is a fantastic introduction to the year’s offerings from Kenya. Though the whole country has just had a fantastic coffee harvest, this is our pick of the bunch. Expect a coffee reminiscent of the classic Kenya profiles of old. That means you will find a cup oozing with juicy blackcurrant, full bodied panela sugar sweetness and a pleasantly bright yet balanced ruby grapefruit acidity. We can’t get enough of it.
Tasting Notes: Panela Sugar, Blackcurrant & Ruby Grapefruit
