We recommend this coffee is best used as a Filter.

Processing at the Kimathi wet mill adheres to stringent quality driven methods. All coffee cherries are handpicked and are delivered to the mill the same day, where they undergo meticulous sorting.

Factory employees oversee the process and any underripe or damaged cherries will not be accepted by the ‘Cherry Clerk’ – one of the most important harvest-period staff , who keeps meticulous records of how much coffee each producer delivers on any given day.

Any rejected coffee will have to be taken home again, and the farmer will need to find a place to dry it (often a tarp in the yard) to be delivered only at the end of season. Thus, farmers are incentivised to only pick and deliver the ripest cherries that they can.
