We’re proud to purchase beautiful Kenyan coffees year after year, including this Thirikwa Gakuyuini, which we are excited to bring back for the third year in a row.
The Gakuyuini factory is a wet mill located on the slopes of Mount Kenya in the Kirinyaga District, about 80 miles from Nairobi, and is part of the Thirikwa Farmers Cooperative Society. Of the 1,553 smallholder farmers in this co-op, 674 are women. Member farmers bring ripe cherries to sell at the wet mill, including SL-28, SL-34, and Ruiru 11 varieties.
Freshly Roasted: All orders are roasted on Monday and Thursday and are shipped on the same day. Note that if you order Two-Day Shipping after 7am on any given day, your order will be processed the following roast day. We do this to ensure your coffee arrives to you as fresh as possible!
