NEW!



Karatu Wet mill was built in 1965. Nestled on 11 acres, it is one of four owned by the approximately 900 members of the Gitwe Coop Society of farmers and services surrounding the villages of Karatu, Kibiru, Kigga and Gitwe. Smallholders bring their freshly picked coffee cherries to Karatu for washed processing.

Crop production started rising during the 2002-2003 harvest, which was encouraging, though not completely offsetting the fact that most farmers are still more active with tea production than coffee. However, management is now encouraging farmers to go back to coffee production and because the price is becoming more stable and is quite high, farmers are thus more encouraged to return to begin more coffee production.

Tasting Notes

This hand picked Kenyan coffee near Gatundu has aromas and tastes of ripe tomato, sweet strawberry jam and wild berries. Balanced and pleasant cup.
