About this coffee :

Gachatha is the name of the factory, or wet mill, where members deliver coffee cherry for processing, and sorting before being delivered to the dry-mill where it is finally prepared for export.

Gachatha used to be part of the much larger Tetu FCS, but broke away on it's own almost 10 years ago. There are over 800 members to date, extremely "small-holder" farmers, most with less than 100 trees - SL-28 and SL-34, French Mission hybrids produced by Scott Laboratories in the 1930s.

This is an AA separation, the larger 17-19 screen bean size range. It's worth mention that despite the turmoil in Nyeri this year, there was good competition for the coffee, and we wound up paying a premium over what was expected for this one.

This coffee has a vibrant berries notes and very clean juicy sweetness. A great example of well processed Kenyan coffee. This is a light roast that's perfect for V60, brew with high temperature of 96ºc above for the sweetest cup.
