Kenya Gicherori Embu: Tastes like Blackberries & Molasses
FREE SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS
Every year we try to offer at least one Kenyan coffee, which is famous for how clean and bright the flavors reveal themselves to be. Part of the reason is that Kenyans have perfected what they call the “72 hour process” which produces exceptionally clean, defect free coffee beans.This coffee is no exception and is deeply fruit-sweet, with blackberry and cherry on the front, backed up by a lingering molasses finish.
Light roasted for drip and press.
All orders ship within two business days.

We serve this coffee as both espresso and drip in our shops. We use 20g ground espresso to produce 40g brewed espresso in 30 seconds. If you don't have a scale and the espresso is between 7 and 14 days old, just aim for a volume a little over 2 ounces for a double. Please note this coffee is delicious as straight espresso but can get lost in milk; if you prefer a stronger espresso for milk drinks we recommend using the Blendo Stupendo. Of course, feel free to experiment with the parameters to find your perfect coffee. If our parameters make the espresso taste sour or bitter to you, just increase your brewed amount a few grams up if it's sour or a few grams down if it's bitter. For our drip coffee, the parameters vary a little because we use a refractometer to control strength at 1.35% TDS, but if you don't have a refractometer just use about 12 grams of coffee for every 8 ounces of water.
