Getting product details...

From Clifton Coffee Roasters:

Kiambu County is located just outside Nairobi City. The region has a long history of coffee production and is famous for its large estates, which were originally built by British colonists in the early 20th Century. After decolonisation the estates were sold to local Kenyans who have been managing them since.

This coffee is naturally processed on raised African beds. Natural processing is a rarity in Kenya, which has built a fine reputation on the back of exceptional fully washed coffees.

Ripe cherries are selectively harvested and floated to select only the ripest, highest quality cherries for processings. These cherries are places in a single layer on raised drying beds and dried in the sun for up to 6 weeks. The cherries must be manually turned periodically every day to ensure an even drying and prevent mould formation. Once the coffee has reached its optimum moisture content it is rested before being hulled, graded, further handpicked, and finally bagged in GrainPro for export.
