Our limited release single origin this month has a big, intricate cup profile, with berries like raspberry, blackcurrant, fresh vanilla pod, violet-like flowers, hints of chocolate and coconut, in the aroma and cup. Juicy sweet acidity, with delicate syrupy mouthfeel. A classic Kenyan coffee.
Delicious as a morning plunger coffee, or a little espresso.

About the region and producer on this fine origin;
Gatomboya Green Factory is located in Mathira Division, Nyeri County. Nyeri County is located in the former Central Province of Kenya, about 150km north of Nairobi and shares its borders with five other countries.
Gatomboya is part of the Barichu Farmers Cooperative Society. The Barichu FCU services 4000 smallholder coffee producers. Gatomboya specifically services around a quarter of those coffee producers. Apart from its outstanding flavour complexity, one of the reasons why Coficom likes buying coffees from Gatomboya is the strong management of the cooperative society behind the mill. Barichu is known for taking good care of its member producers and the nearby community.
