Coffee overview

This stunningly intense coffee comes from the Gathaithi Farmer's Cooperative Society, in the center of Kenya's famous Central Highlands. Membership totals 1,542 farmers. Part of previous harvest profits are set aside to provide school funding, access to farm inputs and emergency funds.

The intensity from this cup cannot be overstated. This coffee is brimming with tropical fruit flavors and syrupy sweetness, and measures off the charts in extraction potential. While it leans heavily into bright acidity, the cup also shows thick, syrupy sweetness and a rounded body in the form of brown sugar.
