This is our first coffee from Gathaithi Factory in Nyeri. This peaberry separation makes up 10% of Kenya's total production and coffees from Nyeri always provide rich and sweet syrupy flavors. In the cup we taste plum sugar, cherry sweetness and bright green grape acidity.

About Gathaithi Factory

The Nyeri area’s coffee crop is famous for its rich, flavor-dense cup profiles. Gathaithi is the name of the local Farmers Cooperative Society, as well as the washing station where this coffee was first processed. Competition is fierce in Nyeri, and many farmers affiliated with the Cooperative are surrounded by several stations they can choose from in processing their harvests. Kenya’s coffee industry retains a traditional auction system, offering greater compensation for coffees that score well in quality tastings. Effective cooperation is thus imperative, and the need for reciprocal trust between farmer and producer explains the Society’s current membership of over 1,100 local members.
