Behind the cup

Pulpy and sweet notes of Guava burst throughout this cup. The first sip is like a bite of stone fruit, tart skin and sugary flesh of Black Plum. Sweet Honeysuckle adds bite and a floral complexity to the finish.

Farmlevel Story

Gura AB coffee cherries

The Gura Factory is situated in Nyeri County at the base of Mount Kenya. With Mount Kenya being the second tallest peak in Africa, Nyeri has become a popular and ideal region for growing coffee. When cherries grow at high altitudes with mineral-rich soil and perfect temperatures, they take longer to mature and cultivate a more developed and strong flavor. We have been loving coffees coming from the Gura Factory this year. We first fell in love with their AA lot, and we’re stoked to share this AB lot well. The rich tropical flavors and the clarity in the cup stand out. 

The biggest difference between the AA lot and the AB lot is the size of the beans: lots graded AA have a screen size of 17/18 while lots graded AB have a screen size of 15/16. While there is some debate whether or not AA coffees are better than AB coffees, both of these lots coming from Gura are of extreme quality and flavor. Gura consistently grades beans for high quality. We have come to admire Kenyan coffees in general for their sweet, bright, and ripe undertones in the profile. 

There are currently 500 smallholding farmers delivering their cherries to the Gura Factory. The Othaya Farmers Cooperative Society organizes Gura with 18 other factories and over 14,000 farmers bringing their cherries together for milling, processing, and exporting. Because lots are not separated by varietal, we’re able to find many varieties in this coffee amongst other coffees from Kenya.
