This coffee is a combination of three of our favourite lots from the Othaya Farming Cooperative Society (FCS) in Nyeri County, Kenya. The coffee grows on the eastern slopes of Aberdares mountain ranges. Othaya FCS was established in 1956, has 19 factories (wet mills), and more than 14,000 members. Each factory processes coffee from farmers who generally have half acre plots averaging 250 coffee trees. Othaya FCS also has its own dry mill operation in Gatuyaini.
