Embu, Kenya

This clean and snappy coffee from Gikirima factory is one we strive to carry on our menu each year. Located in one of Kenya’s great coffee-growing regions, Embu County, the modest Gikirima factory pours its resources into exact processing methods and fair compensation for growers. Their efforts are unmissable in this top-quality coffee that delights even the most seasoned drinkers of Kenya’s finest. Where deep-red fruit and wild acidity typically define profiles from the area, Gikirima achieves a crystal-clear structure that’s uncommonly crisp and refined. Girikima is an endlessly delicious cup that will get better as it ages. Expect flavors of blackberry, marshmallow, and apricot.
