The Little Details

This coffee comes from Murang'a County region in Kenya. It's grown 1750 metres above sea level and it is fully washed process. It's drawn from Ruiru 11, SL28, SL34 varietal coffee beans. 

About the Process

There are two harvests in the Murang’a County, the main occurring from October- December, and a fly crop harvested between April and July.
The coffee trees are carefully monitored and picking ensues only when the cherry is at the ideal level of ripeness. Picking occurs in the morning and buckets of bright red coffee cherries are carried to the mill. As the sun traverses across the sky into the afternoon, the cherries are piled high as underripe cherries and foreign objects are removed from the gleaming pile. The cherries are then poured into a hopper located
just above the pulping station.
From here, clean local river water is drawn upwards and directed into the hopper to cover the coffee. This force pushes the cherries down a chute into the pulping house. Here, the outer pulp is removed, and the coffee is moved to a fermentation tank to breakdown the exterior mucilage for 12-24 hours. Once the fermentation is complete, the coffee is washed and sorted by density until being sent to one final fermentation tank to soak for an additional 24 hours. This step increases the proteins and amino acids in the coffee to help create a more flavourful cup profile.
Finally, the coffee is evenly dispersed onto raised tables to dry in the open sun for 2-3 weeks. Once completely dried, the coffee is moved to the dry mill to be prepared for export.
