Kenya Karatu

KENYA KARATU

About the bean:

Kenyan coffee has long been prized for it’s characteristic acidity owing to the rich volcanic soils, and this lot is a testament to that character.

The coffee that comprises this lot is from various smallholders who make up the the Gitwe Farmers Co-Operative Society. Many farmers in Kenya are smallholders, and bring coffee to mills under the banner of a co-operative to create lots large enough to sell. 

The coffee takes it’s name from the Karatu mill which was established in 1965 and serves 4 surrounding villages including Karatu Village.

Flavour notes:

Lively acidity, dense berry fruit flavours, delicate body.

Varietals:

SL28, SL34
