The uniqueness of Kenyan coffees lies in the way they evolve - not steadily in a linear way but through successive windows of expression. This classic Kenyan reveals fresh, ripe stone fruits balanced with a smooth vanilla and honey finish.

Farmed in Meru County, this Fairtrade, UTZ certified Kenya single-origin, bourbon coffee beans are grown on the eastern slopes of Mt. Kenya, a region rich in mineral soils and abundant rainfall. Registered in the early 1950's, Gichugene is one of four wet mills managed by the Katheri Farmers Co-operative Society (FCS) that boasts a membership of 2,200 farmers.

A managing 7-member board led by Mr. Ikiara is committed to high standards of farming, processing and storing coffee. Active members of the board are required to produce 1,000 kgs or more of coffee1! Society members are trained on sustainable farming practices such as pruning the coffee trees, testing the soil's pH level and applying organic manure. Gichugene's effort reflect a need to improve quality and pricing for its members. This comes at a precarious time when Meru farmers are abandoning coffee for tea in search for better and frequent returns.
