About This Coffee

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.

Details

Gikirima is like the gift you can’t wait to open, despite having found it half-hidden in your sweetheart’s closet weeks ago. Unwrapped, the beauty you’ve long dreamt about is yours to savor at last.

Notes
  • Our coffees go through a rigorous selection and quality-testing process, and we only share the coffees that have most captured our imaginations.
  • Each bag of Kenya Embu Gikirima whole beans is shipped to you within 24 hours of roasting from our Oakland roastery.
  • A cupping spoon and a soapstone hippo are two things our Green Coffee Buyer, Charlie, takes with him when he's sourcing our coffees.
