Rob says: It’s relatively rare to buy single estate coffees in Kenya. And even more so with the owner of the farm being female. Thank you Grace for harvesting and producing this crop to perfection. We bought a big AA and a small PB lot (always much less peaberries on harvest…)
Kamvara Estate is well-outfitted with a pulper and several fermentation tanks and washing channels. After selectively handpicking, cherry is pulped on a disc pulper. Coffee is dry fermented for 16 to 24 hours and, after being washed, soaked in clean water for a further 24 hours. Wet parchment is dried on raised beds for 2 to 3 weeks.
FOR KILO ORDERS: WE DON'T SUPPLY ORANGE KILO BAGS, SO A RED ONE IS FILLED WITH KENYAN BEANS.....
