Kenya Embu Gikirima


Each year, we try our best to have Gikirima washing station’s coffee on our menu. Their crystalline coffee kicks off our Kenya offerings and is, without fail, a perennial favorite. Where many coffees from Kenya are defined by deep red fruit and wild acidity, this one’s clean and snappy. How it achieves a degree of focus that’s uncommon even among the great coffees of Embu County, we can only guess. But one thing’s clear: Gikirima washing station turns Kenya-style wet processing into an art.
