About this coffee :

The Kahuhia Farmers Cooperative Society was first registered under the Coop Act on 25th April 1959. Gwethe’s sister factories in the society are Kahuhia, Wanjengi and Gathinja.

Each factory is placed within an electoral zone/area, represented by the management committee that forms the Kahuhia board of directors. In addition, the society has a supervisory board of 3 members who checks the activities of the management committee. Both committees report to the cooperative members in annual general meetings.

The coop has 16 permanent staff. It is located on the highly productive South-Western slopes of Mt Kenya and the eastern slopes of the Aberdares mountain range. Main crop is harvested in October through December and the early crop in April through June each year.

This coffee has undergone a traditional fully washed process. Ripe coffee cherries are carefully selected and floated in clean water to remove any immature or poor quality cherries, which float to the top of the tank. These top cherries are then pulped to remove the cherry fruit and fermented in clean water for 4-6 days to break down the remaining sugary mucilage.

The parchment coffee is washed with clean water in grading channels and then dried on raised African beds for 3-5 weeks (depending on ambient climatic conditions). Once the optimum moisture content has been reached the parchment is rested for around 1 month and then hulled, graded by bean size and further handpicked, before being bagged in GrainPro for export. 

This is a super vibrant Kenyan coffee, packed with loads of classic blackberry & cranberry fruity notes from washed Kenya coffee, finish with cane sugary sweet aftertaste. A great example of well-processed washed coffee that we recommend pairing with a simple cheesecake, try it and you’ll be surprised!
