This coffee comes from the Thirikwa Farmers Co-op in the Kirinyaga region of Kenya. Located just south of Mount Kenya, the many farmers here all bring their coffee cherries to the Gakuyuini factory. This co-op has been meticulously sorting, processing and exporting specialty coffee for many years, and their work has led to a well-deserved reputation for excellence and quality. We’ve been fortunate enough to send several of our team members to the Gakuyuini factory and it has been an incredible experience to build relationships here and witness the hard work first-hand!
This coffee is for people looking for an adventurous coffee experience, who want to explore the more unique side of specialty coffee. Not for the faint at heart!
