About the Farm

Gondo and its sister washing stations are in a unique pocket of Kenya. Muranga County is just south of the most famous coffee counties of Kenya’s central province: Nyeri, Kirinyaga, and Embu. Western Muranga County runs directly into the upland Aberdare Mountain range, on an rich, red, volcanic soil ideal for producing some of Kenya’s best coffees. The Aberdare range’s climate provides a cool, moist environment similar to that of Mt Kenya in the regions just north. 

Coffees from the Gondo factory tend to be rich and tangy, with a syrup-like texture and stone fruit notes. Individual farmers in these fertile foothills cultivate approximately 250 coffee trees each on roughly half-acre plots per family. 

The Gondo processing station, or “factory”, as they are known in Kenya, is on the three sites managed by the new Kiriti Farmers’ Cooperative Society (FCS), an umbrella organization that centralizes management and marketing relationships for their member factories. New Kiriti has 2,469 farmer-members across three factories, 727 of which deliver coffee cherries to Gondo.

Very good, unique flavor profile.

Probably our most favorite from Red Bay and that says a lot as we enjoy the other varieties immensely.

Absolutely amazing!

So glad I was able to purchase a bag before it sold out. Balanced and rich with a bright citrus finish.
I’ve never not been truly amazed by Red Bay’s offerings, but Gondo was extra special!! A+++

Gorgeous Gondo

I gave Gondo a try when they offered it on special recently. The flavor is light but complex, full of flavor without any rough edges. So delicious! Give this classic kenyan a try if you haven't already. Def a taste experience for the coffee connoisseur!

Smooth, chocolate, light tasting with a pleasant finish that makes you want another cup before you are half way done. I don’t want to be without this one

My new favorite Red Bay bean

Okay, I am a fan of pretty much all the Red Bay varieties and blends I've sampled. Perennial faves are Coletrane, King's Prize, and Brazillian Cake Lady. But Gondo...Gondo tops them all! If you're a light-roast person, this one is for you. If you're not a light-roast person, you might become one after trying Gondo. Seriously one of the best coffees I've ever had. Please, kind Red Bay folks--if you can find a way, please please please make this one of your regular offerings!
