Getting product details...

From Casa Espresso:

Our first Kenya in 4 years, we have been waiting to find a coffee that would match price with quality and this certainly does, with a cupping score of 88.50. In the cup it is sweet and juicy - notes of wine gums, blackberries and a syrupy body.

The Gaturiri factory is a member of the Barichu Cooperative society, along with three other factories, Gatomboya, Karindundu and Karatina. There are around 1100 small producers who deliver cherry to the Gaturiri factory washing station and this amounts to between 500 and 600 tonnes of cherry throughout the harvest season.

Since construction over 50 years ago, the washing station has consistently produced top quality coffee, with management staff put high emphasis on cherry selection, proper washing and soaking and long, slow drying.
