About this coffee :

這是來自 Nyeri 縣 Ichuga 濕磨機的水洗肯尼亞 AA Top 批次。 Muchoki 是由 Kiama 農民合作社經營的 4 個濕磨機之一 - 或“工廠”。合作社有 3,549 名成員,其中 690 名將櫻桃運送到 Muchoki 進行加工。農民佔據肯尼亞山東坡和阿貝代爾山脈西坡的土地,海拔為 1,200 - 1,800 馬斯爾。栽培品種有SL28、SL34、瑞如11和八田。

這種咖啡採用傳統的完全水洗工藝,使用來自 Gathiururuko 溪流的淡水。櫻桃被送到濕磨機,在那裡經過仔細分類,只選擇最成熟的進行加工。將成熟的紅櫻桃去漿,然後在水中發酵 12-48 小時(取決於氣候條件)。發酵的目的有兩個:首先是分解剩餘的含糖粘液,其次是讓杯子變得更加複雜。從這裡開始,咖啡在乾淨的水道中被洗滌和分級,然後在非洲凸起的床上在陽光下慢慢乾燥約 3 週。


This is a washed Kenya AA Top lot from Ichuga wetmill in Nyeri county.  Muchoki is one of 4 wetmills - or 'factories' - operated by Kiama farmers' co-operative society. The co-op has 3,549 members, of which 690 deliver cherries to Muchoki for processing. The farmers occupy land on the eastern slopes of Mount Kenya and western slopes of the Abedare range, at altitudes of 1,200 - 1,800masl. Varietals cultivated include SL28, SL34, Ruiru 11 and Batian.

This coffee utilises a traditional fully washed process using freshwater from Gathiururuko stream. Cherries are delivered to the wet mill where they undergo careful sorting to select only the ripest for processing. Red ripe cherries are de-pulped and then fermented in water for 12-48 hours (depending on climatic conditions). The purpose of fermentation is two-fold: firstly to break down the remaining sugary mucilage, and secondly to develop more complexity in the cup. From here the coffee is washed & graded in clean water channels and then dried slowly in the sun on raised African beds for around 3 weeks.

For such a must-have Kenya, no amount of explanation is superfluous. With the great vibrancy of kumquat, tangerine & grapefruit sweetness, bright blackcurrant fruitiness that you often find in Kenyan coffee. A refreshing coffee that makes a cure for the hot afternoon.
