So how does this coffee get to us?
The Kerugoya factory is found in the central divison of the Kirinyaga district and is associated with the Inoi Farmers Co-op Society. Small holder members handpick the coffee fruit which is then delivered to the Kerugoya factory where it is pulped- a method that is used to separate the dense beans from the immature `mbuni’s (floaters), using water floatation. This process means the denser beans will sink and be sent through channels to the fermentation tank. The whole fermentation process takes between 36-48hours after which the beans are sent to the soaking tanks for 24 hours and it is in this process that allows the amino acids and proteins in the beans cellular structure to develop further. It is this process that contributes to the higher acidity and complex fruit flavours in the cup. The final stage involves the beans being transferred into a thin layer on the drying tables where 50% of moisture can quickly be removed over a period of 6 hours. The beans are then gathered and laid in thicker layers where they remain for the final 5-10 days of the drying period.
Fast Facts! The varietals…
This Kenyan Kerugoya is made up of two varietals SL28 and SL34. It was back in the 1930s that the development of hybrids brought about these highly successful varietals which are now world famous and highly admired. It is their wonderful clean, complexity in the cup along with unrivalled lemony acidity which makes their qualities so sought after!
