ALTITUDE: 1,800 - 2,050 m 

PROCESSING: Washed

VARIETY: SL-28, SL-34, Ruiru 11, Batian

Positioned a few kilometers outside the town of Karatina in Nyeri sits the Gatina Washing Station. Here, between the western slopes of Mt. Kenya and the eastern slopes of the Aberdares mountains, 790 members of the Mugaga Farmers' Cooperative Society - including 280 women - bring their coffee cherry to be hand-sorted for quality, with damaged and defective cherry being removed before further processing. The cooperative takes quality very seriously: farmers must take any rejections back to their homes, creating an incentive structure to only bring high quality cherries to the station. 

Kenyan coffee is singularly revered in specialty coffee, and for good reason. Brimming with fruits, distinct in its terroir, and containing a lovely liveliness, there are few things roasters and specialty coffee aficionados wait for more than Kenyan coffee season. We selected this lot from Gatina above other Kenyan offerings for its very fruit-forward taste profile, a delightful mix of red fruits and punchy citrus. Gatina is the only lot from Kenya that we sourced this year, and we are happy to say that it was worth the wait!
