Walter Mathagu has developed a reputation for extraordinary quality few farmers anywhere in the world can match. At 84, he has announced his retirement. His three sons, Andrew, Peter, and Patrick, are taking over, and are committed to the same path their father blazed. This small crop, deep, sweet Mamuto is Walter’s last signature coffee. Enjoy!
George Howell Coffee has been buying Mamuto since 2006. It has never faltered. Walter Mathagu’s coffees, always ripe and sweet, have ranged from excellent to exquisite as weather patterns challenged but never overcame him. To experience Mamuto, roasted and brewed properly, is to drink a coffee in every way comparable to the finest red wines.
More than anyone, Walter has put his coffee region, Kirinyaga, on the map; he has raised small farmer awareness to what is possible, and brought seekers of great specialty coffee in growing numbers to his area. Thank you, Walter!
