The Little Details
This coffee comes from Kiri Farm in Kirinyaga County, Kenya. It's grown 1450 meters above sea level and are fully washed and dried on raised beds. It's drawn from a mix of Arabica Line Ruiru 11, SL28, SL34 and Batian varietal coffee beans.
About the Process
After harvesting ripe coffee cherries by hand, producers transport the cherries to the mill whereby the exterior pulp is removed via machine. The coffee is then rushed into a fermentation tank and submerged in water to initiate a fermentation process. This stage lasts overnight and allows the sugars to break down before being pushed through channels to complete the washing process. After a last careful soak, the freshly
cleaned coffee is spread on the raised tables to begin the drying phase.
Drying can vary in duration and is dependent on temperature and volume. This means that drying will take anywhere from 7 – 15 days in the open sun. During this time, the coffee is hand-sorted and moved to prevent the spread of mould and maintain quality. Once the ideal moisture content is attained, the coffee is hulled and rested before being shipped.
