This is a single outturn from a the Kichawir Farmers’ Cooperative wet mill factory in Kenya's western Kericho County. Kericho has a unique climate and a long history of producing excellent coffee, despite being outside the country's highly regarded central counties.

The Kichawir coffee production process involves depulping and fermenting the beans on the same day they are harvested and brought in by members. The beans undergo overnight fermentation, followed by thorough washing and slow drying for a period of 2-3 weeks on raised beds.

The unique microlot code, also known as an "outturn" number, for this coffee is "14KK0016". It is used to track its journey from factory to export in Kenya's microlot export system to ensure complete traceability. It is composed of a 2-digit "coffee week" number, a 2-letter mill code, and a 3 or 4-digit intake number.

Our interpretation of this wonderful coffee boasts a robust, flavor profile with prominent fruit notes and a full body.

We recommend a pour-over method such as Chemex, V60 or Kalita Wave to fully enjoy the complexity and aromas this coffee has to offer.
