Story

Organized and run by the Kabare Farmers Cooperative Society, the mill processes cherries from local producers who harvest only the ripest cherries from their small plots. Coffee cherries are then hand-sorted at the beginning of the process before pulping. The parchment around the bean is then fermented overnight in tanks in order to break the sugars of the pulp. After fermentation, the parchment is then washed and graded (this means it is a wet process coffee). After the coffee is washed, it’s soaked in fresh water for long periods of time to solidify the hallmark Kenyan profiles. Coffee beans are then laid upon raised drying beds for 9 to 15 days, resulting in one of the best coffees of the land.
