Tasting notes - Floral with jasmine, grapefruit, lemon and raspberry

Muhara Cooperative Society has two factories: Muthiga and Magomano. Together they gather 896 members, and span a coffee growing area of approximately 468 hectares. Both factories are near Gatundu Town, only 50km from Nairobi, and are known for being the land of Jomo Kenyatta, the first president of Kenya.

The altitude in Gatundu Town is 1695 masl, but the range of where farmers are located goes from a low of 1,550 to a high of 1,700. The rainfall in the region is approximately 1,000 mm every year, usually split into two rainy seasons.

The processing is fully washed, as is traditional in Kenya. Ripe cherry is pulped by disk pulpers and fermented for 24-36 hours, depending on ambient temperature, before being washed in channels and transported to soaking tanks. Water for processing at Muthiga and Magomano comes from the local river, Thiririka.
