About this coffee :

Gachatha Coffee Factory rests on a 391-acre piece of land between the villages of Muthuaini, Thiriku, Gachenge, and Kianjau in Nyeri. Nyeri compasses high elevations between 1800-2100 meters above sea level and are known for coffees with intense, complex, and flavour-dense cup profiles.

The Gachatha washing station, or factory as they are often known in Kenya, lies at 1900 metres above sea level in the Aberdare mountain range, in Nyeri county. It has been owned by the members of the Gachatha Farmers Cooperative Society, now numbering around 900, since the inception of the society in 1963.

As the station is located just 10km south of the city of Nyeri, the area is densely populated, which leads to some difficulties for the station. For instance, they have to be especially careful with wastewater and pollutants, as the water used for coffee fermentation can contaminate local water supplies. This lot of mainly SL28 and SL34 has been processed using a variation on the washed process popular in Kenya, which involves a second soaking of the coffee after the initial wet fermentation. This further cleans up the cup, and adds to the intensity we value in Kenyan coffees.

This coffee is super duper juicy. With grape, sugarcane and berries fruitiness, pair with lovely floral qualities and honey sweetness. A delightful Kenyan coffee that you'll fall in love with.
