Kenya is often regarded as producing some of the most exciting, dynamic, and complex coffee available. This coffee from the Karatu Factory in the Kiambu region of Kenya is a quintessential representation of that belief. The Karatu Factory is operated by the Gitwe Farmers Cooperative Society where almost 2,000 small shareholder farmers bring their coffee to be processed. Producers in this region grow SL-28, Batian, Ruiru 11, and K7.

This coffee is super light and juicy with a round body and lots of sweetness. We’re tasting vanilla, orange, and raisin.

FROM CAFE IMPORTS:

Coffee in Kenya is typically traceable down to the factory, or mill level: Most farmers own between 1/8 to 1/4 of a hectare, and often grow crops other than coffee as well, which means they rely on a central processing unit for sale and processing of their coffee. Producers deliver in cherry form to a factory, where the cooperative will sort, weigh, and issue payment for the delivery.
