Rob says: For the world of quality coffee, Kenyan coffees are renowned for their African Washing styles, bright acidity and strong complexity. While searching for our 2022 X-mas coffee, one of our goals was to find a complex coffee with a lively acidity. That’s why I’m delighted we found this ICHUGA with AB screening/grade.
The Ichuga washing station/factory is a sister company of the better known Kiangundo station. They utilise a traditional fully washed process using fresh water from Gathiururuko stream. Cherries are delivered to the wetmill where they undergo carful sorting to select only ripest for processing.
