Tasting notes

Red grape — Sweet — Dried apricot

Mutitu factory is part of the Kariua Farmers Cooperative Society, which has 2200 members. Other factories in the FCS include New Irera, Mutheru and Githaiti. The growing altitude ranges from 1500 to 1800 meters above sea level. Predominant varieties in the region are SL28 and SL34.
The producers deliver their cherries to the central washing station. Mutitu factory then wet processes the coffee in typical Kenyan style. The cherries are sorted on maturity and processed separately per quality group. The coffee is depulped and ferments for up to 24 hours. Next, it is washed and graded on bean density in the washing channels. The highest qualities are soaked for an additional 24 hours in clean water before being carried out into the drying field. The coffee dries on raised beds for an average of 10 days. When the coffee has dried to 11% moisture content, Kenya’s registered marketing agents take the coffee to the weekly auction. In this auction, registered buyers are able to bid on the coffees they liked. Each buyer can take samples from the auction’s sample room to evaluate in his own lab, a week prior to the auction.
