Kenya Muranga Gatubu
Tastes: Plum, Grapefruit, Creamy
The Gatubu factory, part of the Iyego Cooperative, was built in 1965 to serve the farmers in Murang’a county on the slopes of the Aberdare Range, Kenya. The French Mission coffee varieties, SL28 and K7, are common in the area, and perform well in the red volcanic soils. After the ripe cherries are picked, the coffee is pulped, fermented, washed by water from the Mathioya river, and graded by hand while it sun dries. The result in the cup is bright and tangy, with grapefruit and plum acidity, and a creamy body.
