*MONDAY ROAST ONLY! This coffee is only ROASTED on Monday. Please order by Sunday, 11:59 pm PST, to be placed on the roast queue to receive that week’s roast. Please note: Your entire order will be shipped together - as often this causes a delay if you order in advance. If you would not like your order shipped together, please order separately. If your order contains two special roast dates the order will be separated.

Kenya is Mike's favorite coffee , he takes home 3 lbs every week to enjoy. This is Mike's choice of the year with flavor notes of sweet and balanced with lemon citrus, green tomato, stone fruits of apricot and peach.

Our partner, Karindundu Factory, is part of Barichu Cooperative Society, which helps train farmers on the specific agricultural practices key to drawing out out the unique flavors of each coffee varietal. Located in the southern part of the famous Mount Kenya, the co-op is made up of about 1,450 small scale farmers. The cherries are washed with fresh river water from Ragiti River and sundried on raised beds. The rich red-volcanic soil infuses the coffee cherries with all of the minerals and flavor needed for a balanced, flavorful cup.

After pulping, the beans are fermented overnight to break down the sugars. The beans then travel through channels and make their way to the soaking tank, where they’re carefully cleaned, soaked, and spread out on raised drying tables.

The amount of time that the beans spend on the drying tables depends on climate, temperature, and the amount of beans that are being processed. Drying can take anywhere from 7 to 15 days. Care-filled hand sorting and turning takes place throughout the drying process, making this a cup of coffee surrounded by the warmth of community.

Klatch Coffee Roasting is committed to working with coffee farmers

who are true artisans of coffee cultivation and practice their craft with a dedication, passion and skill. Klatch works with, and offers their support to, these skilled producers for the sole purpose of presenting only the highest-quality artisan roasted coffee...

Mike Perry believes there are a number of critical factors contributing to the growth of a truly exceptional coffee, and that farmers are one of the key factors. Therefore he believes those who do the best work should get the best price; he does not believe in coffee subsidies.

Klatch Coffee believes working with these farmers to deliver the highest-quality coffees requires that they listen, learn, cup, and give feedback in their creation...

Mike believes that a coffee farmer who grows an award-winning coffee is an artisan and should be given his due. Recognition develops dedication to craftsmanship, skill for production and passion for the harvest quality.

Klatch Coffee Roasting believes that great artisan roasted coffee is inherently produced through sustainable methods. They therefore only work with farmers who think long and hard about economic, social, and environmental conditions of their farms and communities. Sustainable does not have to mean organic, but it certainly could.

Klatch seeks to deliver the highest possible return to farmers and therefore require their importers, exporters, cooperatives and farmers to agree upon the financial distribution prior to harvest and act transparently in the execution of distribution, allowing Klatch Coffee to monitor the committed delivery price to the farmers.
