    TASTING

    Welcome to Vincent's favorite terroir, one of the owners of the Nektar. Kenyan coffees are usually straight, clear and fruity, with a lot of acidity. This one is no exception, there is even a sweet side to it.

    Gatomboya is an accessible coffee for those who want to explore this country. It is tasty and easy to enjoy.

    This coffee is one of a finest quality at a more than interesting price.

    ORIGIN

    These grains come to us from the Gatomboya washing station, operated by the Barichu Agricultural Cooperative. This cooperative has between 900 and 950 active members. They are farmers who have a few coffee trees on their land, along with corn, macadamia nuts, bananas and beans. When the cherries arrive at the washing station, they are sorted, pulped and fermented overnight. They are then washed and dried on raised beds for 10 to 12 days.

    Kenyan coffees are rather rare this year, they are found in smaller quantities. We are really happy to have grabbed this lot. It's impressive to see Kenyans getting such good quality beans from a blend of the harvests of 950 growers. 

    The AA rating refers to the coffee bean scale, which designates coffee beans that are larger than average. There is a general correlation (with many exceptions) between bean size and coffee flavour.

    ROASTING

    We roast this coffee at a low temperature, with a development around 19.5% with the aim of bringing out the acidity of the red apple. We have opted for a profile halfway between espresso and filter. 

    DRINKING

    It is a coffee that we will take the time to taste, having in mind the exploration. Perfect to escape in your head at the beginning of a stressful day.
    The expression "thirst coffee" comes to mind when we taste it. As soon as you finish a cup, you want to pour yourself a new one!

    Favour tasting in manual infusion.
