Coffee of the week - #20-17

It's been a long while, but good to see Love Coffee again.

Sasaba is the name of the washing station and this coffee from the Guji zone, Ethiopia. A little while ago we shipped another coffee from the same region, but a natural one. The Sasaba washing station is at 1800 masl and the soil is mostly clayish. Here, Love works with Trabocca that makes this a coffee we wouldn't get our hands on through other roasters. The Sasaba was also sent to you guys who wants a slightly darker roast for your espresso machines.

For the thirsty subscribers the second coffee in your package is Guama from the Kirinyaga region. The Guama factory is located on the Western side of the Kirinyaga District in the southern part of Mt. Kenya and is part of the Baragwi Cooperative Society. The Guama factory serves 3,500 small producers with an average of only 86 trees each. GUAMA is named after the area where it is located, "Guama Village", and was opened in 1974. This region is recognized for a smooth body that supports the dynamic acidity which makes Kenyan coffees so unique. The Baragwi Cooperative has more than 16,000 registered members. These members are drawn from the 12 wet mills which form the society. Enjoy!
