Kenya - Githathi
This coffee comes to us directly from the Kariua cooperative in Mukoe, Kenya. While our importers were at this origin, this specific coffee jumped off the table exhibiting brilliant tropical notes. In years past, Kenya has primarily only sold coffee through large auctions, with little direct connection to specific growers and washing stations. More recently, the groundwork has been laid to foster long term personal connections. The result is health and social development programs, and increased quality of coffee.
