The Gondo factory is operated by the New Kiriti Farmers Cooperative Society (F.C.S.), which has 560 members. Coffee is picked and brought to the factory that same day for selection and separation, as hand sorting happens before depulping begins. The ripe cherry is processed using fresh water from the local Kananahu stream, and the coffee is dried under full sun.
The New Kiriti F.C.S. has an executive committee of seven elected members and three supervisory-committee members who oversee the management committee and reports to the farmers in an annual meeting. The society has a workforce of 19 permanent staff and about 25 seasonal workers.
When we are selecting candidates to enter our exotic filter series the criteria is simple, we need a coffee that’s going to impress people and that’s what this is doing.
This is a superb Kenyan coffee that is a fine example of coffee’s from this origin, ohh, did we mention it’s a Peaberry which is what gives it that super creamy mouthfeel. We always love having Kenyan coffee’s in the house here and they have a cult following out there in the specialty coffee community. The tasting notes of this coffee are just amazing and don’t really do it justice. As I’m writing this description I’m also sipping on a beautifully prepared V60, the notes of Sweet Lemon Curd and Peach Tea are just so prominent. There’s no need to hesitate on purchasing a coffee this good ladies and gentlemen! We’ve prepared it with a fairly standard recipe of 30g Dose, 500g water off the boil and total brewing time of 3:40min.
