It came down to the holidays and we couldn’t help ourselves; we just had to bring in an extra special coffee to share. Since our last coffee from Kenya was gone in a week or so, we decided to bring in a little more this time. Karagoto is one of three “factories,” or washing stations to which the 5,000 members of the Tekangu COOP deliver their cherries. It employs four full-time staff who are able to provide support to the local producers; this staff is constantly working to implement best practices for wastewater management, reuse of processing byproducts for mulch, and keeping the producers on track to meet quality standards. Coffee that does not meet agreed-upon quality thresholds is not accepted by Karagoto. This attention to detail and insistence on standards has earned the factory several awards and a reputation for quality, which nets it consistently high premiums on Kenya’s national coffee auction. This lot is crisp, bright, and well in the spirit of the season. Share this coffee with your family or someone special, and Happy Holidays to you and yours from Commonplace!
