Lot 5: (Grade: AA) Gibsons Coffee Kathunguri

The first crop of Gibsons coffee was planted in the early 1960s after Kenya attained self-governance from the British Government. On a small farm of five acres, the first Arabica coffee tree variety SL34/SL28 was planted, in a virgin land and produced a very high quality coffee.

Super Gibs Ltd roasts and packs its coffee under the ‘Gibson Coffee’ brand and is distributed locally, while green coffee is exported abroad.
