What is the Future Fresh™ Date?

If you have been involved in specialty coffee for the last few years, chances are, you have heard of or tasted the sweet fruit of the Gachatha Farmers Cooperative Society. Every year this wet mill (factory) produces some of the best Kenyan coffee. This lot from Outturn 19 lives up to the hype. The cup has a beautiful dichotomy of delicate and bold flavors. White grape and tamarind are quite pronounced and structural in the cup, while botanical sugar cane and soft peach carry throughout giving this coffee an intense upfront moment that relaxes with subtleness at the end.

Gachatha Farmers Cooperative Society is made up of about 1150 farmers. Jane Nyawira has managed their wet mill (factory) for over 12 years now. It is rare to see a manager work for such a long time and shows that dedication and consistency always help provide a great cup. Located 100 miles north of Nairobi, the cooperative is in the famous coffee growing region of Nyeri. There they utilize the elevation of the Aberdare mountains and water from the Kangunu river. This station has consistently produced incredibly sweet, complex bright coffees and we continue to ask marketers and reps to bid on these at the auction on our behalf.
