The Karagoto Factory, in the Karatina region of Nyeri county, has over 1,700 members supplying coffee cherries, all with an average farm size of just a half hectare. 

Farms in this area have two harvest seasons, with a late crop harvesting from September to January, and an early crop from April to July. During harvest, coffees are carefully hand selected for perfect ripeness, and is brought straight to the mill on the same day. There, an additional sorting step takes place to ensure only the best cherries make it through. 

This attention to detail and quality results in an exceptional coffee. In the cup, we're tasting notes of blackcurrant, sugar cane, and tart tamarind.

Frequently Asked Questions

When Will My Order Ship?

Most orders ship the next business day from when they are placed, unless that is a holiday.

The only exception is any pre-order item, which will ship on the date stated on that item's pre-order page.

Do You Have Recommendations For Brewing?

Yes!

First, we recommend a brewing ratio of about 1:17. So whatever your dose of coffee is for a brew (we recommend weighing your coffee in grams), multiply that number by 17, and use that weight of water to brew.

Second, always try to grind your coffee fresh, directly before you brew. This will significantly impact the flavor.

Lastly, and maybe most important, always use the highest quality water you can. Filtered is always best. Coffee is 98.5% water, so the water you use makes a huge difference.

Is ReAnimator Coffee Organic/Fair Trade?

While some of our coffees may happen to be certified organic or fair trade, we do not specifically look for either of these certifications when sourcing coffees, and do not market them as such.

All of our coffees are bought at fixed prices above the c-market, and 99% of the time we are paying higher prices than the Fair Trade Certified price.

Our sourcing goals are always quality and flavor focused, and we buy from producers and importers we trust to provide us with coffee that fits into our ideology.
