This classic Kenyan Nyeri is sourced from small family-owned farms, a part of the Barichu Farmers' Cooperative Society; which is organised around the Gatomboya Factory in Nyeri County, Kenya.
"Gatomboya" is a Kikiyu word for "Swamp", which describes the swampy nature of the land where these beauties are grown. They have a cult following for their vibrant and complex flavours. The cherries are also handpicked and sorted manually by only choosing the ripened cherries before production.
