Kenyan coffee is generally classified by wet mill rather than individual farm. The Aguthi Farmers Co-operative Society have four wet mills (Thageini, Gaaki, Gititu and Kagumo), with the Thageini mill the second largest in terms of member producers (around 350 men and 100 women). The whole Aguthi Co-op has around 2,000 producer members.Once wet milling has taken place, the parchment is dried out and delivered to the Sagana Coffee dry mill.
Thageini wet mill is located within the well known Nyeri coffee-producing region. Nyeri County has cool temperatures and fertile central highlands, lying between the Eastern base of the Aberdare (Nyandarua) Range, which forms part of the Eastern end of the Great Rift Valley, and the Western slopes of Mt. Kenya.
The coffee cherries were picked when its ripe red. Then it's sundried in whole on an African raised bed for 14-21 days to slowly dry until the moisture level is 10-12%. Then coffee is delivered to the dry mill.
This is a natural processed Kenyan coffee that comes pretty rare. Lots of sweet stonefruits & cranberry jammy sweetness, finish with hints of milk chocolate note. Definitely a lovely coffee to start your morning.
