DT Coffee Othaya PB is from the Othaya Farmers’ Cooperative Society Limited and processed at the Mahiga wetmill, one of a few washing stations or “factories” that form the coop group based in the heartland of Kukuyu territory, Nyeri in the heart of Kenya. The mill processes coffee cherries sourced from over 501 farmers. The total farmed area is 122.2 acres with individual trees yielding between 5 and 10kg of cherries per season.
The coffee is wet processed, where the fully ripe cherries are pulped, fermented for 12 - 48 hours (depending on climatic conditions), washed and then dried slowly over 2 - 3 weeks on raised African beds until the moisture content is reduced to 10-12%.
The coffee is then processed at Othaya dry mill where it is rested in parchment for 3 weeks before being hulled, cleaned and graded by bean size. Finally, the coffee is carefully handpicked before being bagged in GrainPro for export from Mombasa.
Varietal: SL28, SL34, Ruiru 11, Batian / Grade: Peaberry or PB.
