Gondo

The Gondo wet mill, operated by the New Kiriti Farmers Cooperative Society, is located in the Mathioya District and comprised of 560 members. Farmers selectively hand pick and deliver their cherry to the wet mill on the same day. The cherries are then sorted and washed using water from the nearby Gondo river. They are then carefully fermented, sun-dried and washed again before delivery to the dry mill.

Case Coffee Roasters were particularly impressed with the intense sweetness of this lot from the 15 week outturn of the mill. According to Coffee Shrub, “An outturn is a term used in East Africa to describe a dry mill "batch" from a particular estate or coop.

Nyeri, Kenya

Coffee from the Nyeri District is sometimes referred to as “the heart of Black Gold Coffee” due to the intensity of flavor packed into slow-developing, very dense beans. Grown in the highlands between the eastern base of the Aberdare Range and the western slopes of Mt Kenya in young volcanic soil and blessed by strategic rainfall, beans develop a classic balanced Kenyan taste profile: fresh fruitiness, crisp citrus, bright and balanced acidity.

Part of Kenya’s rich agricultural sector, the Nyeri region became UTZ certified in 2008, and since then, there has been a tremendous improvement in coffee quality. Smallholders rather than large estates are most common, and most growers belong to cooperative organizations which own processing mills to which members can bring their harvested cherries.
