This hand-selected Kenyan filter coffee has delicious floral aromas with notes of tropical fruit and berry and a juicy body. Every step of its harvest is meticulously screened by Gakuyi-ini AA, a smallholder Farm that makes up a part of the Thirikwa Farmers Cooperative, west of the Nyeri. These farmers take pride in their work, hand-selecting the ripest cherries to be delivered to the Gakuyini wet mill that sits 1600 meters above sea level. Cherries are hand-sorted again, to be pulped and to undergo a fermentation period of 12-16 hours. The coffee is then washed with fresh river water, dried on raised beds and hand sorted to be sent to us in Alberta. Each drink will have you reveling in the care and meticulousness - it’s as if it adds to the flavor profile.
