Coffee Story: Guama Washing Station is a member of Baragwi Farmers Co-operative, which operates in Western Kirinyaga. This region produces some of our favourite coffees coming out of Kenya. The average member of Baragwi has 86 coffee trees and has adopted inter-cropping to increase the biodiversity of the region and the financial security of the farms. The other crops grown are grevillea, macadamia and banana.
This lot is washed in typical African style, which involves a long period of wet fermentation. The process has freshly picked, ripe cherries being pulped immediately after picking and then sitting in a tank of water for up to 72 hours. The wet fermentation method enables a slower breakdown of the coffee fruit due to a lack of oxygen and cooler, more stable temperatures. This delivers vibrant floral and fruit flavours with high intensity.
This coffee will be roasted fresh for you. Coffee Bird will roast your coffee on Monday or Tuesday and dispatch the following day.
