How do we feel about this coffee
It feels like a fresh basket of summer apricots, outdoor rollerskating with friends under a disco ball, and a night out at a neon-lit wine bar alternating between natural orange wines and cassis.
Grown by 760 smallholder farmers near Wambu as part of the New Weithaga Cooperative Society in the Muranga county in central Kenya, this classic SL 28 and SL 34 Kenyan coffee is processed at the Kianderi Factory. These farmers planted their coffee trees in the early 1950s on the highly productive southwestern slopes of Mt Kenya and the eastern slopes of the Aberdare Ranges. Once freshly handpicked, the cherry is delivered to the wet mill the same day to be sorted and carried out at the wet mill before pulping. Processing utilizes clean river water (wet processing) recirculated before disposal into seepage pits. Sun drying is done before delivery of the coffee to the dry mill for secondary processing.
