This is the first coffee we have purchased through Crop to Cup Importers, and what a way to start! This spectacular Kenyan leapt off the table at us with profound berry-like aromatics and a refreshing, juicy snap.

Timely and selective hand picking is carried out at Yara Mill. Cherry is delivered to wet mill the same day it is picked, with sorting prior to pulping. Red ripe cherries are separated from under-ripes, over-ripes and foreign matter. The wet processing utilizes clean river water that is recirculated before disposal into seepage pits. Sun drying on raised tables is done before delivery of the coffee to the dry mill for secondary processing.
