GOSHEN COFFEE SECRET STASH
Grown in some of the world’s most awe inspiring mountains by artisans with generations of experience Goshen Coffee Secret Stash is the road-less-traveled for serious drinkers and baristas. Our roasters travel the world and consult with local experts searching for unique brewing experiences to pass on to our customers. Every couple of months we produce a small batch of air-roasted coffee harvested from small plots around the world. We contract with small farmers and collectives to find their best yields and then offer them on a first-come-first-serve basis and once they’re gone they never come back. For a committed coffee drinker scoring a bag of Secret Stash this is like the hidden cask in the cellar or reserve whisky in the warehouse but without the hangover.
This coffee from Nyeri County, Kenya and is sourced from family owned farms. After harvest, it is wet milled at the Thunguri Mill, managed by the Rumukia Farmers Co-op Society. The coffee in this area reaps the benefits of volcanic loam soil to produce an exciting and interesting cup.

After some insanely long hours sitting in auction, he managed to snag this beautiful coffee produced by Marco Antonio Romero to share with you.
