About the GATOMBOYA beans:
All the way from Nyeri, Kenya. Wood and Co are so chuffed to have coffee from this well known and highly respected washing station for another season.

Smallholder coffee farmers from surrounding villages bring coffee to GATOMBOYA Washing Station, with the nearby Kirigu River providing the water source.
