Description

KENYA AA-GRADE Barichu Lot 113 – Espresso & Filter Roast

The Barichu Cooperative Society has for years been one of the most respected producers in Nyeri. This has been proved by great cup results and consistent high prices in the market—and the amount given back to the farmers has been above 85%. They have been very consistent on quality over the years and have great systems for traceability and quality control.

Nyeri is known for coffees with intense, complex, and flavor-dense cup profiles. It is made up of mainly smallholder farms, each with some 100 trees. They are organized in Cooperative Societies that acts as umbrella organizations for the Factories (wetmills), where the smallholders deliver their coffee cherries for processing. Under the Barichu Cooperative Society you have the four wetmills Karindundu, Gaturiri, Gatomboya and Karatina.

There is a lot of competition in Nyeri. Many of the farmers are surrounded by several wetmills. They are free to choose where they want to deliver their cherries as members. Due to the traditional auction system in Kenya, quality is rewarded with higher prices. The better factories will then attract more farmers by producing coffee getting the highest prices, as well as giving high payback rate to the farm.
