Farmer Families Filter Tasting Box
All three coffee’s exist from input from small scale farms, other than from one big producer. Just as we like to see it, Harmony! Gogugu has been crowned as this year’s official ‘Dutch Aeropress Championship’ coffee. It somewhat reminds us of ice tea peach and the smell makes us feel like wandering massive flower fields. Mitad del Mundo is a clean caramelly and perfectly balanced Coffee with fruity hints of white grape and melon. To sum this filterbox up, we got a coffee from Kenya: Kainamui. Expect natural sweetness of blueberries, tangy hibiscus and luscious hints of dried apricot.

Gogugu: This lot consists of input from approximately 450 farmers who deliver to the Gogugu Washing Station. It then undergoes a 24 to 72 ‘wet-fermentation’ process, before being dried for 13 days. Growed at around 2000 MASL this is seen as one of Ethiopia’s highest-elevation growing areas. Not only the highest, also youngest, is what makes these farms so unique. Most plants are only five to ten years old, creating their title of ‘youngest coffee trees from Ethiopia’.
Mitad del Mundo: Introducing Mitad del Mundo, a collaborative blend of coffees cultivated in the heart of Ecuador by three dedicated farmers. Despite being a small nation, Ecuador’s diverse landscapes, from the lush Amazon jungle to the breathtaking Andean highlands, create the perfect conditions for these beans to flourish. With the spirit of hard work and individual triumphs, our three farmers—Maria from “Cruz Loma”, Segundo from “Santa Rosa”, and Nataly from “Abad”—nurture precious coffee plants, turning coffee production into an art form. For many, this coffee is not just a beverage but a lifeline, supporting livelihoods and employment across various regions.
Kainamui: At Keen, we value farmers and their hard work. So when we heard ‘New Ngariama Farmers Cooperative Society’ (FCS) provides financial support for schools and farming needs, we were at the edge of our seat. If trades do well, they give back extra portions of premiums to all the farmers involved. The local community consists of about 1800 small scale farmers contributing throughout the season, creating unique and elegant lots time after time. The cherries undergo a process of dry fermentation. Up next they get washed and graded in channels. Next up the drying process, which takes place on raised beds. This lot consists of a blend from the varieties: ‘Ruiru 11’, ‘SL28’, ‘SL34’ and a more recent variety ‘Batian’.
