Kenya single origin has arrived

IMG_0926Much awaited, the Kenyan Gatina Estate arabica bean is here.

This medium roast comes from cherries grown around 1800M altitude near Karatina, Kenya.  The taste has hints of juicy blackcurrant, ripe grapefruit and lavender.  The cup is not too acid and has a silky buoyant mouth feel.

Gatina coffee factory is part of the Mugaga Coffee Farmer’s Society, Gatina having around 700 farmer members delivering cherry to the factory. Smallholder farmers here have an average of 150 coffee trees each.  Varieties grown are SL28, SL34 and Ruiru 11.

The coffee management system used by Gatina and its parent ensures that the highest possible price is transferred to the farmer based on market rates.

Come on down to Kemü to experience a little piece of Africa, right in the heart of Terrigal.
