The Kathima factory is under the Thambana Cooperative socie. It's also from a region we haven't been that active in, Embu, a neighbouring region to Kirinyaga at the slopes of Mount Kenya. Still, we have seen way more great coffees from Embu lately than in the past.
Thambana Farmer’s Cooperative Society gets its name from the river Thambana. The river originates on the slopes of Mt Kenya. Kathima coffee is a high grown top quality coffee from EMBU on the rich green slopes of Mt. Kenya, almost on the Equator.
They are supported by Tropical farm management, a company that supports smallholders to increase their coffee production as well as help the factories with quality control and traceability related to processing. The factory is also giving out the fruit after pulping for the farmers to make compost.
The coffees are traditionally processed with dry fermentation before washed and graded in channels and dried on raised beds. The farmers are mainly growing SL28 and SL34, but might also have other varieties mixed in.
This washed coffee exhibits the berrilicious fruitiness that we love in Kenyan coffees. With blackberry & plum fruitiness, pair with brown sugar sweetness finish. A delightful clean coffee to enjoy in the hot afternoon.
