PROCESSING

A washed process in Kenya is like freezing cold vodka on the table during Polish feast. Typical and must be! Before being stripped of their dign..., sorry, of the cherries, the beans are first sorted. Then they spend the night doing crazy things, that is fermenting. The next morning - a splash of water to tidy up! Then recuperating in the sun from 8 to 14  days.


THE FARM

We've never been to Kenya so far, so we won't elaborate too much. As far as we know, Baragwi is the largest smallholder farmers' cooperative in the country! And the region where those neat fruits are grown, Kirinyaga, is a well-known area in the coffee world for its fine quality.


ROASTER'S COMMENT

I remember brewing Guama beans back when I was still a rookie barista sometime in 2014. 7 years later, I'm writing about them in the Roaster's Opinion tab - it's like watching Clarkson speeding down a 911 Turbo when I was a kid, and today I'm sitting in the cockpit myself, foot down! What can I say - typical Kenyan red fruits. A juice, not coffee!


PACKAGING

The coffee is packed in a brown jar made of PET, 100% recyclable or reusable. In case you're thinking "oh no, plastic!", bear in mind that standard coffee packaging is also made of plastic (and a few other materials, making it often harder to recycle). We also thought about glass, but it's heavier, more expensive, breakable and, wait for it, has the same or greater (sic!) environmental impact! A plastic jar turns out to be pretty eco-friendly, just remember to put it in the right container, or find a creative way to reuse it at home.
