A Fruity New Kenya - Gititu

  • 2 min read

Widely regarded as one of the best producing countries in the world, Kenyan coffee is revered due to its unique flavour profiles, with big fruit notes, incredible sweetness and tea like attributes.

Each year we search for the very best that Kenya has to offer, and this year that search led us to Vava Angwenyi. Through her social enterprise, Vava Coffee, Vava works with a network of producers across many regions of East Africa. Situated in the picturesque Kajiado County, an area inhabited by the calm yet courageous Maasai community, Vava Coffee work in this atypical coffee growing region to influence and transform communities. They do this by providing economic empowerment opportunities using coffee through trade, education and capacity building with a sharp focus on elevating the opportunities for women and girls in these communities.

It was through Vava Coffee that we were introduced to the Gititu Farmers Cooperative Society (FCS). Their factory is one of the oldest in Kiambu, and remains committed to the highest level of transparency, with a focus on excellent communication. To achieve this they regularly invite their members to attend auctions at the Nairobi Coffee Exchange to witness their coffees being sold, and to gain a better understanding of the supply chain. 

Gititu owns and operates the Gititu Factory in Gitunduri, Kiambu. The name “Gititu” comes from the Kikuyu word for “big forest,” a reference to the once-abundant forests in Kiambu. Founded in 1954, Gititu FCS is one of the oldest cooperative societies in Kiambu. In 1957, they built the Gititu Factory and today, the FCS owns and operates 8 factories that serve approximately 5,000 members in total. 

This washed coffee is made of four different varieties, SL28, SL34, Ruiru 11 & Batian, grown at around 1500-1700 masl. This coffee explodes in the cup with that classic Kenyan flavour profile we all know and love. Expect delicious notes of cassis, black tea and fruit cake!
