Gatomboya is one of the four washing stations in the Barichu Farmers Cooperative Society of 4000 smallholder coffee producers. Gatomboya specifically services around a quarter of those. Barichu is known for taking good care of its member producers and the nearby community. The Cooperative Society built a coffee shop on the factory grounds that services travelers on the nearby road. The income of this shop helps lower the overhead costs for the management of the cooperative and factories. The washing station lies close to Karatina town in Nyeri county. Nyeri coffee is well-known for its great quality and intense, complex flavor profiles. Slightly over 80% of all coffee production in Nyeri comes from smallholder farmers. The majority of them make up the county’s 23 different cooperative societies.

Cupping Notes: Currant, cane sugar, juicy, bright, blackberry tart, toffee, good balance.

The high plateaus of Kenya produce coffee beans with a full body and rich, strong, flavor with a very pleasant acidity. The fragrant aroma also has floral tones, with a winey finish/aftertaste that also has citrus and berry overtones.
