About this coffee :
Nyeri is located on the slopes of Mount Kenya and together with the neighbouring region Kirinyaga it’s known for coffees with most intense, complex, and flavour-dense cup profiles worldwide.
It is made up of mainly smallholder farms. The farmers are organized in Cooperative Societies that act as umbrella organizations for the Factories (wetmills), where the smallholders deliver their coffee cherries for processing.
After picking, ripe cherry is brought to the factory before it undergoes processing to remove the skin and pulp – known as the wet processing (washed) method. The factory is using a disc pulper with three sets of discs to remove the skin and fruit from the inner parchment layer that is protecting the green coffee bean.
After pulping, the coffee is fermented overnight to break down the sugars, before it is cleaned, soaked and spread out on the raised drying tables. Time on the drying tables depends on climate, ambient temperature and volumes under processing, and can take from 7 to 15 days in total.
This Kenyan AA is super clean & intense sweetness, with vibrant fruity aromatics of blackcurrant & cranberry. A classic flavour profile of SL28 that makes our favourite evening coffee.
