Flavor: Currant, Kiwi, Tamarind (Tangy)
Grower / Region: Smallholder farmers organized around the Kamuchege Factory / Kiambu County
Notes: With just over 200 bags (60 kg) of total production coming from 220 farmers, the Kamuchege factory is turning out a rare and exclusive lot of Kenyan coffee. Kamuchege is one of 13 factories organized under the Komothai Farmers Cooperative Society in Kiambu county where the focus is to inspire the next generation of coffee producers to take the reins at the factories and bring in a new era of innovation. Factory management is critical in a system where harvested cherry is coming from so many different small parcels. Cherry classification is the most critical variable for ensuring cup quality. Only the ripest cherries are delivered to the Kamuchege factory where additional hand sorting and floating to remove less dense and damaged beans also happens before the coffee is fully processed.
