Kenyan 'Getuya' AA

Kenyan 'Getuya' AA

from 21.00

We are proud to be offering Kenyan ‘Getuya‘ as our first Kenyan coffee in quite some time. This delicious coffee is grown by Samuel Muchiri in the province of Kirinyaga. ‘Getuya’ translates to ‘ripe’ and ‘Kirinyaga’ signifies ‘God’s mountain’, illustrating both the attention to creating delicious coffee and a beautiful picture of the land on which this coffee is grown.

Samuel stands out as one of the few organic coffee producers in Kenya. This lot received an AA grade, which is the highest quality grade a coffee can receive in Kenya. Also, Samuel experimented with this coffee using a relatively new process called anaerobic fermentation. To achieve this, he placed his coffee in fermentation tanks and vacuumed out the air so that fermentation would occur without any oxygen. This is a very new technique and gives the coffee’s flavor a unique complexity that’s hard to forget.
