Kenya - Thika Karatu (City Roast)

Kenya - Thika Karatu (City Roast)

Tasting Notes:

Light roasts highlight the full range of flavors Karatu has to offer. A cinnamon sauce note is accented by tart fruits like peaches and cream and pomegranate seeds, leading to a sweet-spiced finish.


Farm Notes:

Karatu Coffee Factory is located near Gatundu town in Kenya's Thika District, Central Province. It was established in 1965, and membership is currently held in the nearby villages of Karatu, Gitwe, Kibiru and Kigaa Villages. Karatu is a "factory", in Kenyan terms, basically a cooperative wet mill that buys and sells the coffee of members. Factories generally supply more than just access to the coffee market, and Karatu offers additional programs including access to capital for farm reinvestment, and provides members with agronomical inputs. The Karatu site sits at around 1890 meters above sea level, and is strategically situated next to the Rwabura river where it is able to pump clean water for processing coffee. They've dug waste water pits where the water used for processing is directed, and soaks into the soil, instead of running off back into the river.
