Kenya - Gathaithi AA - Washed Process
This fan favourite Kenyan is back for good reason! We have been buying this coffee for a few years now and it is definitely a favourite for us at Josie. As you would expect from a washed Kenyan, this one is super crisp, clean and has amazing acidity, with those classic caramel, berry and citrusy flavours in the cup.
About the coffee:
The Gathaithi Factory (wetmill) is located in Nyeri in Central Kenya. Nyeri is known for coffees with intense, complex, and flavor-dense cup profiles. It is made up of mainly smallholder farms, each with some 100 trees. They are organised in Cooperative Societies that acts as umbrella organisations for the Factories (wetmills), where the smallholders deliver their coffee cherries for processing.
This region has red volcanic soil, rich in phosphorus, which is what gives this coffee its bright acidity and strong blackcurrant notes.
