About this coffee :

Kathima工廠隸屬於Thambana合作社。它也來自我們尚未活躍的地區,恩布(Embu),這是肯亞山山坡上與 Kirinyaga 相鄰的地區。儘管如此,我們最近發現來自Embu的優質咖啡比過去更多。

凱希瑪是一間年輕的處理廠,隸屬於Thambana合作社,位置與知名產區——基里尼亞加郡相鄰。凱希瑪處理廠會先讓咖啡櫻桃進行乾發酵,然後水洗去果皮,接著在水道中將生豆分級,最後置於非洲棚慢速乾燥。恩布所種植的主要品種為SL28、SL34,偶爾也有一些其他品種。

在我們杯測眾多的肯亞咖啡裡,這支豆子以明顯的紅糖、李子酸甜感出眾,餘韻則有綿長的香草莢香氣,是非常甜美的一款咖啡。在忙碌的年末裡用來舒緩身心,或帶到與家人朋友聚餐的場合一起享用都十分適合。

 

The Kathima factory is under the Thambana Cooperative socie. It's also from a region we haven't been that active in, Embu, a neighbouring region to Kirinyaga at the slopes of Mount Kenya. Still, we have seen way more great coffees from Embu lately than in the past.

Thambana Farmer’s Cooperative Society gets its name from the river Thambana. The river originates on the slopes of Mt Kenya. Kathima coffee is a high grown top quality coffee from EMBU on the rich green slopes of Mt. Kenya, almost on the Equator.

They are supported by Tropical farm management, a company that supports smallholders to increase their coffee production as well as help the factories with quality control and traceability related to processing. The factory is also giving out the fruit after pulping for the farmers to make compost.

The coffees are traditionally processed with dry fermentation before washed and graded in channels and dried on raised beds. The farmers are mainly growing SL28 and SL34, but might also have other varieties mixed in.

Among the many Kenyan coffees we have cupped, this bean has a distinct brown sugar and plum sweetness and sourness, and the aftertaste has a long vanilla pod aroma. It is a very sweet coffee. It is very suitable for soothing body and mind at the end of a busy year, or for taking it to dinner with family and friends.
