We were very fortunate to acquire the microlot of fantastic peaberry Kenyan from the most recent crops out of the Karatu Washing Station. The rare peaberry type coffee bean appears in only about 5% of coffee beans, with smaller rounder berry forming when only one of the two beans within a coffee cherry is fertilized, giving the beans their distinct shape from the more common flat bean. Peaberry coffees have a sparkling acidity and this particular micro lot is no exception. When brewed this sparkling acidity and the bean’s flavor profile give a taste akin to caracara orange marmalade. This unique flavor and acidity really shines as black coffee, so we recommend brewing this as chemex pour over, iced coffee, or straight black espresso. 

Caracara Orange, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Candy

Amongst the washing stations operated by the Gitwe Farmers Cooperative Society, the Karatu washing station consistently processes some of the best Kenyan coffees, with sparkling flavor that has kept coffee buyers coming back year after year. Near the capital at Nairobi, Kiambu county has become increasingly urbanized but is still home to many of Kenya’s largest and oldest coffee farms along with the Kenya Coffee College and Coffee Research Institute. The Gitwe Society has around 2,700 members and has won over 10 awards for such things as Dormans Quality Awards, Good Food Awards, Highest Payments to Farmers, Clean Water Production and Solar Energy Use.
