Gakurari Peaberry – Kenya **

$17.95

 

**This coffee roasts to order on Tuesday of each week**

 

This coffee is the culmination of hard work of 500 smallholder farmers who are members of the Gatunyo-Kigio Farmers Cooperative Society. The producers deliver their cherry to Gakurari Factory, one of the society’s four washing stations. Gakurari Factory employees meticulously process their coffee, which includes 12-16 hours fermentation, 2 days skin drying (thin bed, frequent rotation, and hand sorting of parchment), followed by 10-12 days of regular drying.
The Gakurari Factory produced less than 200 bags this harvest, and SteamDot was lucky to purchase a few. Fun fact: a peaberry is a naturally occurring genetic mutation in which only one coffee seed grows in a cherry (instead of two).
