KENYA // RUCHU GACHARAGE FARMERS
This variant is currently sold out
This is one to be savoured. Sip slowly and enjoy a complex and syrupy coffee, accented with wonderful black currant flavours. This lot was produced by several hundred smallholder farmers, all of whom are members of the Ruchu Gacharage Farmers Co-Operative Society.
Processing at the Ruchu wet mill adheres to stringent quality-driven methods that result in fantastic coffees such as this one. Cherries are handpicked and delivered to the mill the same day, where they undergo meticulous sorting. Underripe and damaged cherries will not be accepted.
Wastewater from the wet milling process is managed through the use of soaking pits. The water used for processing the cherries is kept in the pits to ensure that the nutrient-rich water (created during de-pulping) will not be returned to the nearby water source without proper treatment. This step cuts down the risk of bad contamination.
