We discovered this super sweet natural in January on our Kenya souring trip in Nyeri. It tastes like a cherry coke, like cherry and cola.
We also found hints of rooibos, rose hips, red berries and rhubarb. Overall, we cupped 53 coffees on our Nyeri tour and visited around 7 factories, cooperatives and estates every day and shook many hands. We were very impressed by the board meeting with the 10 representatives of the 19 factories of the Othaya Cooperative, into which we burst by chance.
Most of the farmers in Nyeri only produce a few kilos of coffee, which is why they have formed cooperatives and bring their cherries to so-called factories for processing. One of them is Ichamama. Since washed coffee is mainly produced in Kenya, we are all the happier that we discovered this exciting natural and brought it to Hamburg. The coffee cherries grow at the foot of Mount Kenya in the mountains of Nyeri at an altitude of 1800m. After picking, the farmers bring the cherries straight to the factory, where they are dried and sorted as natural on African Beds for around 30 days. The result is a very sweet, complex and fruity coffee that we like best from the AeroPress.
