Description
 

MONDAY ROAST ONLY

This bean starts with a bright lavender, blackberry and honey aroma. The flavors offer a complex fusion of grapefruit, sweet tomato, apricot and cinnamon.

The Gichuka Factory is located in the Gatundu district about 60km northwest of Nairobi. Gichuka is a washing station that is part of the larger Kimaratia Society or Cooperative. One Cooperative may have multiple washing stations under its label. Normally, cooperatives in Kenya can have as few as 1 or as many as 10+ washing stations under its jurisdiction. The reason for this is to keep transportation of coffee cherries to a minimum before being processed. Each washing station is created to match each unique micro-climate that exists in the Kenyan rainforests.

Excellent, light chocolate, smooth May 12, 2016
Reviewer: Travis Hill from Boise, ID United States  
As the headline says, the Kenya Gichuka has light hints of chocolate but not too overpowering, and makes a very smooth (not acidic or bitter) brew. I specifically enjoy it between days when I have a "fruitier" coffee (Panama Elida / Burundi Mpanga / Gideo Worka) to sort of reset my palate.

made with: Aeropress
ground: extra fine
