Welcome back, Thiriku!
For 4 year now, we have been purchasing coffee from the Thiriku Farmers Cooperative – located just outside the town of Nyeri and right off the Aberdare Mountain range in Central Kenya. Thiriku was established as a cooperative in 2000, and currently has around 1,900 members.
Thiriku never fails to innovate while delivering incredible quality. This year, the cooperative completely changed all of their systems for processing coffee, but still delivered a great lot. This harvest of Thiriku offers impeccable notes of grapefruit, hibiscus, red grape, followed up with a light sweet savoriness.
Holiday Shipping Note: Our delivery carriers will not pickup or deliver on Monday, September 2, in observance of the Labor Day holiday. As such, orders received after midnight Eastern Thursday, August 29, will be roasted packaged, and shipped on Tuesday, September 3. Orders in transit may experience a very slight delay.
Have a safe and happy holiday weekend!
