About the Coffee
This coffee was picked by farmers working with the Gichathaini Wet Mill in Nyeri
Farmers selectively handpick the ripest, reddest cherries, which are then delivered to the cooperative’s wet mill on the same day. Cherries are hand sorted prior to pulping, with damaged and under ripe cherries being separated out from the red, ripe lots. After pulping the coffee is fermented. After fermentation, the coffee is washed in clean, fresh water to remove all traces of mucilage before being delivered to dry on raised beds where it is repeatedly moved and sorted to remove any damaged or discoloured beans.
Farmer members of the cooperative are able to access pre-financing for school fees, farm inputs and emergency needs through Mercanta’s partner at origin. The cooperative also receives assistance for farmer training and input access, with a long term goal to increase coffee production in terms of volume with focus on quality and sustainability. Good Agricultural Practice seminars are conducted year round.
