Kenya Gondo Peaberry Limited Black Label
Kenyan coffees always produce a smooth and complex bean, and this peaberry coffee follows suit. What makes this specific coffee special is the citrus fruitiness that pops out at you when you take your first sip. This coffee is nicely balanced with a very creamy mouthfeel and unique caramelized notes, almost reminiscent of a rich cola. We were blown away by the bright, sugary cup it brews. It is an absolute standout!

The Gondo Factory Coffee Production:
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.
