ROASTERS NOTES:

Peach, mandarin and jasmine flavours with a black tea aftertaste

Our first Kenyan coffee of 2017 from a new station for us but very familiar region in Nyeri, located half way between Nairobi and Mount Kenya.

Located a couple of hours north of Nairobi and close to the famous Mount Kenya, The Rukira washing station, or coffee factory, as they are known in Kenya, is owned and operated by the Othaya Farmers co-operative who represent 676 smallholder coffee farmers in the region.

These smallholder producers, whose average farm size is just a couple of hectares, will grow coffee alongside other cash crops (often tea in this part of Kenya) as well as subsistence vegetables and possibly some livestock. They deliver their harvested coffee cherries to washing stations like Rukira where the coffee is processed and mixed into bigger co-operative lots.

The coffee is processed in the traditional Kenyan style, which involves dry fermenting the coffee for 12-16 hours and then soaking in cold fresh water for a further 24 hours. Coffee is then dried on raised beds before being graded and exported.
