    About the coffee

    The process starts with the mechanical de-pulping of the cherries as soon as they arrive at the factory. The cooperative makes a point of having its factories close to small farms so that the cherries can be de-pulped as soon as possible after harvest. After de-pulping, the coffee beans are covered with a layer of sticky, fruity mucilage or mucilage. This mucilage is fermented in large tanks for 12 to 24 hours. Afterwards, the seeds are thoroughly "washed" in long washing channels.

    A special feature of the processing is the "double soak", which is popular in Kenya. This step not only serves to increase the purity and intensity of the finished cup, but also provides a second opportunity to sort lower density coffee beans, which are often of lower quality or come from immature cherries.

    Each processed batch is kept separate throughout the process and tasted separately. This allows the wet mill management to evaluate and continuously improve quality patterns.

    The farm | Rung'eto Farmers Cooperative, Kii Factory

    new Partner
    The Kii Washing Station is run by the Rung'eto Farmer's Cooperative Society, which also owns the Karimikui and Kiangoi mills. Near Ngariama are also Gakuyuini, which some of you should also already know and love. Much of the region was planted with coffee just before the advent of hybrid varieties in Kenya, which means that 99% of farmers who supply to Kii grow SL28 and SL34, while only about 1% use rust-resistant varieties such as Ruiru 11 or Batian.

    About the farm

    The small region in Kirinyaga served by the Kii Mill and surrounding the village of Ngariama is mainly a tea growing area, so most of the coffee planting is quite new. The region is known for the very high quality of both tea and coffee. Because it was planted a little later than neighbouring regions, the soils have not been depleted by years of conventional agriculture with its sprays and chemical fertilisers.

    Bloody Good Espresso

    Coffee is a fruit which is naturally acidic and contains many sugars. We roast our espresso to develop a fine acidity and to bring out its natural sweetness.

    Our espresso roasts aim to present the strong flavour profiles of different origins. Discover our single origin espressos – all 100% arabica coffees, carefully selected and gently roasted by our team in Berlin.
