Kenya Giankanja ethically sourced, handcrafted, artisanal single-origin specialty coffee by Social Coffee Roasters from Vancouver, BC. We freshly roasted coffee beans delivery all over Canada.

Giankanja - Kenya

Regular price $23.00

This unique peaberry coffee comes to us from the Giankanja washing station at the southern slopes of the picturesque Mt. Kenya and the foothills of the Aberdare mountain range in Nyeri county. Smallholder farmers selectively handpick ripe cherries and deliver them to Giankanja where they undergo meticulous sorting. This lot consists exclusively of peaberries, which are the result of a natural mutation in the coffee cherry. Whereas there are usually two beans nestled together in each fruit, in a cherry with a peaberry mutation, only one bean forms. Peaberry mutations occur in approximately 5% of all coffee, are known for their small, round shape, and what many observe to be a sweeter flavour profile.

Social Coffee was an idea that was born from Beyond Bread, a small artisanal bakery located in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood on West 4th avenue.  At Beyond Bread, the loaves and pastries are meticulously prepared using carefully selected, high quality ingredients with a focus on producers with a commitment to sustainable agriculture and biodiversity.
The idea behind Social Coffee was to create coffees that matched Beyond Bread’s standards for high quality sustainable products.  These values are represented in Social Coffee’s line-up with organic coffees used for both our Final Proof Espresso Blend and Swiss Water Decaf Cascadia Blend, and traceable single origin coffees used for all of our filter coffees.
By purchasing high quality, traceable specialty grade coffee, we support transparency and are able to provide recognition to our producers.  By focusing on coffees that are produced using sustainable methods, we can ensure that specialty coffee can continue to be enjoyed for generations to come.
At Social Coffee, all of our coffees are carefully selected, prepared in small batches, and packaged by hand.  We love what we do and our goal is to make every cup our best.


Social Coffee

Social Coffee is about community. Our social and environmental values are reflected in the products and relationships we create. Our coffee is thoughtfully sourced, handcrafted, and roasted in small batches. We love what we do and our goal is to make every cup our best.


Hand roasting is the art of curating and blending beans to create the most perfect flavor for each variety of coffee. It's about telling a story.

Small Batch

Our coffee beans are freshly roasted in small batches every Friday and shipped the day after, which means they are never roasted more than 7 days before despatch.


We use coffee beans sourced from farmers who uphold sustainable practices and are ensured a fair price. Big change can be made one coffee at a time.
