Red Fox Coffee Merchants
We literally couldn’t ask for a better way to kick off our Kenyan season. This AB lot from Gakuyu-ini is SO clean, and so sweet. The Gakuyu-ini factory, located in Kirinyaga, is a member of the Thirikwa Cooperative Society. The coffee from this factory is meticulously cleaned during processing: they ferment the beans twice, once in water right after pulping and again without water after the first washing. After the second fermentation and washing, the beans are moved to “skin drying beds” to allow water weight to drop before being moved again to raised drying beds. This process, often called a “72 hour process”, leaves the beans as clean as can be and truly allows the coffee to shine. This particular lot left us stunned—the cup Is floral forward, with a clear raspberry jam note, juicy tangerine acidity, and a lingering finish that just gets better and better. Enjoy!
