coffee info

The 790 members of Gatina station cultivate a total of 142 hectares. This breaks down to about a tenth of a hectare—or a few hundred trees—per farmer. Such small coffee ‘gardens’ makes it possible, vital even, to focus on specialty processing and increase the value per kilogram of cherry picked. Farm labor is usually entirely provided by family members, which can often make maintaining specialty cultivation and picking practices easier. Many of the farmers also grow tea, maize and legumes to consume or sell at local markets for additional cash income.

why we picked this coffee

A mediocre haiku:

We wanted Kenya
We cupped samples. Very good.
Gatina AB

If our roasting talent is as good as my talent to make haikus I would not recommend to buy this coffee. These are the mental images that shot through our minds as we were tasting the beans: a plum, a raspberry, verbena and that  coca-cola commercial with Santa Claus.
