KENYA KIRIGA ESTATE

21.00

The Kiriga Estate is a single estate owned by Dr. Brian Gakunga.  The Gakunga’s have been in coffee for a long time with Brian’s grandfather buying the farm from a British Colonist, back before that was a common practice.  The farm is located close to the Thika region, an area we have bought coffee from before, and is known for quality. The estate has 80,000 trees and is divided into 8 sections.  Each section, draws water from the nearby Chania River. The river is a very important resource for the community, and because of that the Gakunga family has made visible efforts to be good stewards. Their efforts include building seepage pits, reclamations stations, and a private dam which holds water in the dry season, and is at times visited by hippos.  Single owned estate coffees are not the norm in Kenya, with most producers owning smaller sized farms and belonging to a local community washing station, where their coffee is blended with their neighbors. A fully traceable coffee in Kenya can be hard to find, due to their intricate auction system. With all that in mind, we are lucky to be able to share the Gakunga family’s coffee with everyone.
