This excellent Kenyan coffee is a medium light roast with stunning notes of plum, floral and grapefruit. An excellent citrusy smooth coffee for the warmer months.
If you like a nuanced, citrusy cup, and especially if you brew at home on a pour-over brewer, this coffee is for you. Also: nice on ice!
NOTES FROM OUR COFFEE TEAM:
GIcherori factory lies 1550M above sea level on the expansive slopes of Mt. Kenya region which has deep rich red volcanic soils ideal for coffee production.
The factory is receiving assistance from our importer’s partner Coffee Management Services (CMS). The long term goal is to increase coffee production through farmer training, input access, Good Agriculture Practice seminars, and a sustainable farming handbook updated and distributed annually. Through the pre-financing they receive, farmers are given advances for school fees and farm inputs.
Demonstration plots are planted at the factory to reinforce the best practices taught throughout the year. The factory is using a disc pulper with three sets of discs to remove the skin and fruit from the green coffee bean. After pulping, the coffee is fermented overnight. Time on the drying tables depends on climate, ambient temperature and volumes under processing, and can take from 7 to 15 days in total.
All coffee purchases are roasted to order. Orders are shipped on Mondays and Thursdays only.
