Cat & Cloud - Kenya Gakuyuini (washed SL-28 SL34 )
Regular price £15.00
This coffee comes from the Thirikwa Farmers Co-op in the Kirinyaga region of Kenya. Located just south of Mount Kenya, the many farmers here all bring their coffee cherries to the Gakuyuini factory. This co-op has been meticulously sorting, processing and exporting specialty coffee for many years, and their work has led to a well-deserved reputation for excellence and quality.
This coffee is for people looking for an adventurous coffee experience, who want to explore the more unique side of specialty coffee. Not for the faint at heart!
Expect notes of sweet Bing cherry, ocean spray cranberry juice and Limeade.
Cat & Cloud is a coffee roasters headed up by Chris Bacca, Jared Truby and Charles Jack, who also have a string of cafés in and around Santa Cruz California.
I have been following the story of Cat & Cloud since they were borrowing time in a roastery to roast their own coffee and doing pop up cafes in a Santa Cruz bakery.
I listen to their podcast and watch a lot of Cris Bacca’s content on YouTube, to say i’m a fan is an understatement!
These guys are my coffee inspiration and the fuel for some of our values at Mow's, they do things differently to most cafes, creating a community hub not just a cafe, with no pretence and with a mission to leave everyone happier than when they found them, you can see why they are one of my biggest inspirations in the Industry.
Now a four cafe operation, with their original cafe at 3600 Portola Drive, also the home of their first Roastery.
All the coffee at Cat & Cloud is roasted on a hand built San Franciscan, direct flame roaster built in Carson City Navanda.
We are so excited, and proud to be able to bring their coffee to our cafe.
