Kenya Gachatha AA Filter Coffee
Sparkling and crisp, look for aromas of rhubarb & rose petals. A tart, lime-like acidity complements sweet pomegranate before a white chocolate finish.

Featuring in our range for the fourth year, we’re absolutely loving the vibrant, fruity characteristics found in this AA lot from the Gachatha washing station. It is fast becoming our go-to coffee to brew over ice on sunny days.

The 900 active members of the Gachatha Farmers’ Co-operative Society are smallhold producers responsible for growing the coffee that is delivered to, and processed at, the Gachatha washing station, or Coffee Factory as it is typically called in Kenya. On average they tend to around 300 coffee trees and, through the FCS and their partnership with Coffee Management Services (CMS), gain access to loans for school fees, subsidies on inputs for their plants and training in agronomy to boost productivity and vigour.

The varieties grown in the Nyeri region of Kenya are predominantly SL28 and SL34, with Batian and Ruiru 11 varieties becoming a lot more common. The conditions in the villages of Muthuaini, Thiriku, Gachenge, and Kianjau that surround the factory have deep, fertile and well-draining soils which are deep red in colour and rich with volcanic deposits, making them well suited to high quality coffee production.
  • Process: Traditionally depulped, fermented overnight, fully washed & soaked, dried on raised beds.
  • Variety: SL28, SL34, Batian & Ruiru 11
  • Region: Kihora, Nyeri
  • Country: Kenya
  • Altitude: 1,800 to 2,100 metres

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
