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.
Lively acidity, dense berry fruit flavours, delicate body.
