This coffee is a perfect pourover option - the combination of tropical fruit and tea-like notes really comes out in a cleaner brew and had us hooked from the get-go.


Set up in 1956, the Othaya Farmers Co-operative Society Limited initially counted 250 members. 64 years later, the cooperative has 19 wet mills, nurseries for coffee seedlings, a dry mill and 15,000 smallholder farmers as members.

The co-operative's wet mill of Ichamama is located between Nairobi and Mount Kenya, in the famous Nyeri county which boasts so many of the country's finest coffees. The combination of fertile volcanic soil, high altitude, cool temperatures and seasonal rainfall gives fruit to coffees with tremendous quality of acidity - and this coffee's grapey acidity is no exception.

On arriving at the mill, the cherries are pulped, fermented for 12-48 hours weather-depending, washed and dried on African raised beds for 2-3 weeks. They are then processed in Othaya dry mill where it is graded and prepared for export.



Enjoy!
