Kenya - Karatu AA

from 7.00

This new AA Kenyan lot comes to us from the Karatu Factory, located near the town of Thika in Kenya’s Central Province Town. The factory was established in 1965 and rests on a 11 acre plot of land serving the Karatu, Gitwe, Kibiru and Kigaa Villages.

The Karatu factory is a member of the Gitwe Farmers Cooperative Society (FCS), and the factory is also home to the head office of the Gitwe FCS. Factory manager David Kanya runs the operations with a staff of six permanent employees. 

This lot was far and away our favorite Kenyan coffee that we tasted this year. With bright and sweet tropical fruit notes and a well-rounded savory backbone this coffee is complex and a joy to drink. We recommend brewing Karatu through pourover methods, and have had great success brewing the coffee via Chemex.
