What Are Supernaturals

Our Supernatural range encompasses a variety of experimental techniques, many of which have been learnt and adapted from our years of trials with different processes. We are very serious and strict when it comes to achieving the refinement and structure of our Carbonic Maceration (CM Selections) coffees. But we also like to play, be experimental and try new, even crazy ideas with processing. That’s how Supernaturals came to be. For these coffees we focus on boosting the characteristics of flavour, sweetness and body. It’s less about clarity or refinement and more about expressive, exciting, yet approachable coffees.

About Thageini Wet Mill
The Thageini wet mill is one of four mills operated by the Aguthi Farmer’s Cooperative Society. It is the second largest mill in terms of member producers, with around 350 men and 100 women members, and the Aguthi Farmer’s Co-operative Society has around 2000 members total. The Society provides training for their members on techniques for farm management, picking, sorting and agronomic techniques. They hold workshops for members to meet and learn from each other and provide specific advice to producers on their farm where possible. In the time we have worked with Thageini, Project Origin has engaged a number of projects focused on community and infrastructure development. In 2018, Thageini provided Project Origin with a range of exceptional washed coffees, and it was then that we decided to invest in the infrastructure at this station to create new experiences from this farm, while also having access to further the education of this team. In 2019 we began setting up carbonic maceration infrastructure with the Aguthi Farmer’s Co-operative Society at Thageini mill, and we also funded the construction of new drying beds to further improve their facilities and, resultantly, coffee quality. The Aguthi Farmer’s Co-operative Society demonstrates values that align with ours: Quality, Sustrainability and Community, through their focus on community development and the improvement of their members’ coffees. Project Origin and this Society have worked together since 2017 to further implement these values to bring you another wonderful taste of Kenya.
