Kenya Nyeri Kiruga Estate AA
Set up in 1966, the Kiruga wet mill is located in Kiruga village along the Othaya-Mukurwe-ini road on the banks of the Gikirawich river. The mill services the Othaya Farmers Cooperative Society, which was registered in 1956 and started with 250 farmers. Since then, it has grown to a total membership of over 15,000 small-scale farmers, all of which produce Fair-Trade certified lots. This particular lot is pulped, fermented, and washed over the course of two days, then sun-dried on raised beds for up to two weeks depending on the weather.
Tasting Notes: Bright citrus, rich berry, nutty caramel, with a dark chocolate spice finish.
