Kenya is often regarded as producing some of the most exciting, dynamic, and complex coffee available. This coffee from the Gatomboya Factory is a quintessential representation of that belief. This microlot is comprised of coffee from about 950 different smallholders of the Barichu Farmer Cooperative Society, each with plots of land around 1/8-1/4 hectare of land. These small harvests are some of the most traceable lots in the country and provide high-quality flavors. 

This washed coffee yields a juicy, smooth cup with mild tartness and sweetness that is highly desired of Kenyan varietals.

Microlots from Kenya are traceable to either the factory level or individual farm level (when possible), and are selected basis cup score. Because the majority of coffee farmers in Kenya own between 1/8–1/4 a hectare of land, most deliver coffee in cherry form to a local factory for sorting and processing; at the factory, the deliveries are blended and processed into day lots comprising the day's deliveries. Our green buyer for Kenya typically takes up residency in Kenya during the harvest due to the sheer number of samples to be cupped and selects the best of these lots to purchase as microlots (fewer than 100 bags).
