Kenya Nyeri (seasonal)
Farm: Ichamama Factory
Region: Nyeri, Kenya
Varietal: SL-28, SL-34, Ruiru-11
Grapefruit, Cherry, Rose
This seasonal coffee is for the truly fruity people out there. Fruit forward with high acidity is abundant with notes of grapefruit and rose upfront. Once fully cooled, notes of berry flavors pop out, in particular, cherry. An incredibly sophisticated and complex cup of coffee, worthy of pour over status.
This coffee is from the Ichamama Factory, a washing station near Karima Hill in Nyeri. The station was named after the Ichamama river which flows near enough to the station to be the source of water for processing coffee. Ichamama is one of 19 washing stations that make up the Othaya Farmer’s Coopertive Society, a coop-run organization, one of the older ones I might add. Othaya started in the mid-1950s, ballooning from 250 original members to 15,000 strong today. Karima is one of the older of the group, erected in 1964, and currently with nearly 1,000 farmer members (and is one of the most productive of the 19). The station sits at about 1750 meters above sea level, and coffee is grown in the higher altitude areas surrounding it. We had the Peaberry outturn available a while back, and this lot “AB” is a separation of the medium-large sized beans measured in a range of 15 to 17 1/64″. When compared with the two other upper tier grades “Peaberry” and “AA”, it’s not always indicative of higher or lower quality, though the cash premium spread generally favors the AA slightly more than AB or PB.
