This Kenya is a show-stopper!
The Kangocho Factory is located near the town of Karatina, in the Nyeri County of Kenya. Being on the slopes of the Mount Kenya, the soil is rich in minerals. Combined with a constant rainfall every year, this provides perfect conditions to grow coffee.
Once the ripe cherries are being pulped, the parchment is fermented for 12 hours. It is then washed in the washing channels and separated by density. After separation, the parchment is spread out on the drying tables and dried for around around 14 days.
On the cupping table, we were impressed with the depth of fruit character of this coffee, as it cupped more like an incredibly clean natural. In fact, it's a washed coffee that underwent an overnight bag fermentation to jump start the post-pulping fermentation. What results in the cup are some super sweet black currants and a medley of juicy, tropical fruits with lovely, transparent acidity. Please enjoy!
