Gachenge AA

Taste Notes
Raspberry Jam, Dried Apricot, Cantaloupe

It’s unusual to come across a single estate coffee from Kenya, we’re not complaining though because this one is a real fruit bomb! A punch of Raspberry Jam hits you then softens into dried Apricot with a smooth Cantaloupe melon finish. Perfect for those crisp autumn mornings. 


About the coffee

The Gachenge is a showcase for just how tasty coffee from Kenya can be. Fruity, complex and shimmering with end-of-summer sunshine, this fully washed coffee is produced by Stephen RGG at his farm, Gachenge Estate. It’s unusual to come across a single estate coffee from Kenya as most of the country’s producers are members of co-operatives, so their cherries are normally combined into one blended batch. We’re not complaining though… It just makes this coffee a true standout in every sense! The cherries are handpicked and then pulped before being dry fermented for 16 to 23 hours and washed in clean water to remove any remaining fruit. The parchment is then soaked for 12 hours and transferred to raised beds where it is sun-dried for 14 to 21 days. The result is rather special which is why we’ve got hold of it for you to savour and enjoy into Autumn and beyond.
