Description

A coffee whose fruity notes will please lovers of Kenyan coffees, but with a smooth creaminess that makes for a fuller mouthfeel, Wahundura is more than your typical Kenya coffee.

Wahundura Factory is one of 4 wet mills owned and operated by Kamacharia Farmers’ Cooperative Society (FCS).

Over 1,100 smallholder farmers contribute ripe cherries to Wahundura.

Farmers cultivate Ruiru 11 and SL28 varietals at 1,600 to 1,800 meters above sea level in Murang’a county.

After selective handpicking, the cherry is delivered to the factory.

At intake, a cherry clerk ensures that only ripe, red cherries are accepted.

Accepted cherry is pulped on a disc pulper and is then fermented for 16 to 24.

After being washed in clean water, the parchment is soaked in fresh water for an additional 24 hours.

Parchment is dried on raised beds for 18 to 24 days.

Dried parchment is milled at Sucafina Kenya’s dry mill, Kahawa Bora.

About this coffee

In many ways, this is a “typical” Kenyan-washed coffee. It brims with a perfect blend of tea and fruity tasting notes.

During our cuppings of this coffee, though, we found some pretty unique tasting notes.

Blackcurrant is prevalent in the cup and – along with some black cherry – gives an initially tart sensation.

The mouthfeel of the coffee is very “full” it is full of honey and cream. Then, there is a lingering blueberry smoothness in the aftertaste.

This coffee is fantastic for all brewing types. We love it as espresso, but it also really comes through strongly as a filter coffee.
