From Hundred House Coffee:

The Gulmarg Estate is in Kiambu county, located just outside of 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.

The total farmed area is 145ha and the soil is rich, red and sandy. They have two harvests; November to March and May to July.

While estates such as this used to produce the majority of Kenyan coffee, the increased urban sprawl from Nairobi, as well as the increasing land value in the region has meant that estate coffee production has gradually diminished, while smallholder production elsewhere has increased. Nevertheless, estates such as Gulmarg continue a legacy of many generations of coffee production, supported by unparalleled local knowledge and experience.

We’re delighted to have this honey processed lot, relatively unheard of for Kenyan coffee. Ripe 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 de-pulped to remove the majority of the fruit, whilst retaining the sugary mucilage on the outside of the bean.
