We're excited to offer our second Kenya offering of the season, and even more excited that we're buying for the second year in a row from the Thiririka FCS Cooperative in Kiambu.
The Thiririka FCS has 3 factories: Githembe, Kiganjo and Ndundu. However, at Githembe the coffee is only pulped and washed, before it is brought to Kiganjo for drying. Because of security issues, for the last 3 years the parchment could not be dried at the Githembe factory, which was built in 1969. The factory manager has been working at the factory for many years. Before that, he was the manager at the Ndundu factory for 15 years. We offered Ndundu last year, and couldn't wait to get our hands on more coffee from these wonderful producers.
Githembe AA has the classic Kenya profile: tons of fresh and sweet black currants up front, turning quite jammy as the cup cools. You'll also find floral aromatics, a very clean cup, and great sweetness from warm to cool. Please enjoy!
