This Kenyan microlot comes to us from Kiambu County, Kenya. Established in 1902, Yara Estate is has been owned and operated by the Gatatha Farmers Company Ltd. since 1971. The Gatatha Farmers Company Ltd. is a cooperative comprised of several resident small lot producers. Yara Estate is a curious and impressive example of small scale permaculture: it grows tea alongside specialty coffee as well as farming dairy cattle. Look for notes of pineapple, tamarind, and lavender.
