ABOUT THE ORIGIN

Gicherori Factory is part of the Kibugu Farmer’s Cooperative Society. The area surrounding Gicherori area is densely populated, so every effort is made to minimize impact. 

After picking, the members deliver the fresh coffee berries to the mill, where they are depulped (the fruit skin and pulp is removed mechanically), then fermented in large tanks and washed with stored clean water. The waste water is cleaned before being led back into nature, which is common at most mills. After washing, the coffee is dried on typical African raised beds, that allow good air circulation between the beans. Beans are dried to between 11 and 13 % and then brought to the Central Kenya Coffee Mill in Nyeri for grading and sorting.

Meticulous processing at Gicherori Factory ensures the lots are precise in their flavors, and the Cooperative embraces transparency in their operations by keeping lots separate and paying bonuses to members for high-quality lots.

 

Tasting notes: Bright distinctive acidity with heavy body that oozes a floral lemongrass aroma and red berry notes, juicy body with a red wine finish.
