Kenya, Mwiria AA
About the Bean
Complex and refined, with bright raspberry, maple syrup and lemon florals. Great structure and intensity.
Mwiria is a washing station located north of the town of Mutunduri in Embu County, in Kenya’s former Eastern Province. Mwiria receives coffee cherries from 1,271 local members of the cooperative. All the coffee cherries are hand-picked and delivered on the same day to the washing station. After sorting, the coffee is pulped and then dry fermented for 20-23 hours. Fresh water is used to wash the parchment-covered coffee before it is graded by weight. After grading, the beans are sent to soaking tanks where they sit underwater for 24 hours, before being transferred to drying beds.
