This is another incredible coffee from Kenya. Our favorite on the table this year.
Gachatha is a well known mill due to their incredible attention to detail and veteran
producers.Situated in the Central Province of Kenya, Gachatha is located in the slopes of the Aberdare mountain range, about 150km north of Kenya’s capital Nairobi.
The nearest water source is the Kangunu stream, and the factory is dependent on electrical pumps to move water to reservoir tanks before using it for processing. Water is also recirculated for conservation. The factory is using a disc pulper with three sets of discs to remove the skin and fruit from the inner parchment layer that is protecting the green coffee bean.
After pulping, the coffee is fermented overnight to break down the sugars, before it is
cleaned, soaked and spread out on raised drying tables. Time on the drying tables depends on climate, ambient temperature and total production volumes currently
undergoing processing. Drying may take from 7 to 15 days in total.
You select how often you want a delivery, we do the rest. One flat price plus shipping. We give you a new, unique single-origin coffee from our selection that’s hot off the roaster. You get it delivered straight to your door at peak roast time.
Subscribers will get to sample all of our current roasts, except for our Modern American and 431. In addition, we’ll include our limited-edition roasts in your subscription at no extra charge to you. Most of the time these never make the online store, and are only in our shop for a short period.
For freshness, we recommend getting shipments as frequently as possible. Cancel or change your subscription any time, no charge (you’ll receive instructions via email).
