This Kenya coffee grows in the rich volcanic soils surrounding Mount Kenya. The farmers belong to a cooperative in the area. The cherries are harvested in November and December and they are delivered to the wet mill the same day they’re picked. The cherries are sorted according to ripeness. It is then pulped and washed with fresh river water. The beans are dried in the sun on raised beds before going on to the dry mill for further processing.
We enjoy the citrusy qualities of this coffee. It has sweet orange notes and a lush, full body.
