There are very few washing stations, or processing stations, in Kenya.  For this reason, many farmers need to combine their coffee with other farmer's so it can be washed at the same time.  This is why a good amount of Kenyan coffees can sometimes only be traced back to the factory where the coffee was processed.  The Gicherori Factory, where this coffee can be traced back to, is one of the largest washing stations in the country.

Even though we can only trace this one back to its processing station, this is still one of the most interesting coffees we've brought in this year.  Peach cobbler aromatics at the start and all the way through to the aftertaste.  Lively, sweet red wine notes mellow into a caramel sweetness.  There's only so much of this one so get it while the getting's good!!
