Kenya Murang’a Kahuhia AA
This is a washed Kenya AA Top lot from Kahuhia wetmill in Murang’a county. Kahuhia is one of 4 wetmills – or ‘factories’ – operated by Kahuhia farmers’ co-operative society. This coffee utilizes a traditional fully washed process using fresh water from the river Gathamba. Cherries are delivered to the wetmill where they undergo carful sorting to select only ripest for processing. Red ripe cherries are de-pulped and then fermented in water for 12-48 hours (depending on climatic conditions). From here the coffee is washed & graded in clean water channels and then dried slowly in the sun on raised African beds for around 3 weeks. The combination of fertile volcanic soil, seasonal rainfall and high altitude provide the ideal climate for coffees characterized by high acidity, full body and ripe fruit flavors.
