There's no denying it - we're suckers for juicy, bright, and fruit-forward coffees. So, we always look forward to new coffees from Kenya, and our first Kenya of the year, a peaberry lot from the Gicherori factory, is exactly what we've been waiting for.
This lot from Gicherori is all peaberry, and we think it's delicious. This coffee is grown by 900 farmers from the Kibugu Farmers Cooperative Society, and washed and at that cooperative's Gicherori factory (wet mill) on the slopes of Mt Kenya in Embu County. It's deeply sweet with a bit of savory spice (think molasses), with loads of juicy, bright, and sweet fruit flavors. That combination of sweet, savory, and bright can be a bit much for folks who like their coffee unsurprising, but if you revel in coffee's potential for unique flavors, Gicherori PB is probably going to be your jam. It's our jam, and we think it tastes like raspberries, limeade, peach jam, and molasses. Weird? Maybe. Tasty? Most definitely.
