Gakuyu-ini washing station is located in beautiful, fertile and forested part of Kenyan Highlands. It is surrounded by thousands of smallholders subsistence farmers who grow coffee as a cash crop alongside potatoes, bananas, mangoes, avocados and some livestock - usually a cow or two for dairy production and some chickens for eggs and meat. The average smallholding  is approximately 1700 masl, a factor which contributes to the fine flavor of the coffee. The growers have the advantage of deep and rich soils that were created from the ash of the extinct volcano - Mount Kenya.

This is a typical high altitude Kenyan with clean body, beautifully complex and well balanced.
