Kenya Nyeri Ichamama Red Cherry
sweet tea lemonade, coconut, pineapple
This beautiful Kenyan coffee is a perfect example of how meticulous processing can really shine in the cup. After selecting perfectly ripe cherries, the 800+ members of the Othaya Ichamama Factory Cooperative bring their fruit to a central processing station. The coffee is fully washed after floating, then pulped and fermented for 72 hours before soaking in clean water for 16-24 hours. After the coffee is cleaned it's dried in the shade and then shortly in the sun on raised beds. This coffee has a stunning complexity and shows flavors like sweet tea, lemonade, coconut, and pineapple on the cupping table.
