Kenya provides exceptional flavour profiles through traditional processing techniques at the best mills and estates. With one of the most transparent and strict coffee buying systems in the world via the Nairobi auctions the end product is of the highest quality.

Gathaithi Factory is operated by Gathaithi Farmers Cooperative Society, which has more than 1,100 active members, who farm on about 143 hectares of land in the area. The total production for the cooperative is around 102,000 kgs.

Utmost care is taken during processing to ensure the highest quality. Cherries are pulped, fermented and washed, they are then sun dried on tables. Prior to being sent to the dry mill before heading to auction in Nairobi.

You may have noticed that we have stopped labelling some coffees as “Filter Roast Profile”. We felt that our previous labelling of microlots did not do justice to our coffees and what we think they are capable of. We want you to feel free to use the coffee any way you like. Read more here.
