About this coffee :

The Guama Factory is a member of the Baragwi Co-operative Society, this society is well known for its factories being some of those that consistently produce some of the great coffees of Kirinyaga. The factory is named after the village of the area it is located, Guama Village and began processing coffee in 1974.

This coffee comes from smallholder farmers in the surrounding area. The annual volume of cherry processed here is 750 tonnes, this is mostly SL 34 and SL 28. The soil here is rich volcanic soil and sandy soil, the trees are flowering during February and April for the main harvest which is from October to December.

This delicate coffee showcases florals and tea-like qualities complimented with an elegant, rich black currant as the main tasting note. Intense jams and tea-like florals dance around to offer an interesting and balanced profile.

This AB lot jumped to us on the table, outdoing its counter AA lot. We've worked with the Guama factory for several years now who work under the larger, umbrella cooperative, the Baragwi Cooperative Society. This cooperative along with the many washing factories it oversees is well-known for producing consistently great coffees in the Kirinyaga region.
