Relatively unheard of for Kenyan coffee, this honey processed lot is a celebration of the future of processing in Kenya.
Gulmarg has been producing high quality coffee in a region known for its large estates. The total farmed area is 145 hectares and harvesting times range from November-March and May-July. The estate was established by British colonists settlers in the early 20th century. Post colonization times, the estates were sold to local Kenyans inhabitants. With years passing and an ever expanding capital, the value of land increased in Kiambu which led to many coffee producers giving up their coffee producing property. The estate has been able to survive by migrating to high end coffee production with the goal to trade to high end clients. Coffea Circulor is grateful for this fantastic opportunity to support and we welcome it dearly.
The ripe cherries from the SL-trees are meticulously harvested and soaked in clean water. The cherries are then de-pulped to remove the majority of the coffee cherry fruit whilst retaining the sugary mucilage on the exterior of the green bean.
The process continues by placing the coffee onto raised African drying beds to reduce the moisture content to 12.5%. The parchment is rested in a dry environment which further leads into the hulling-, grading- and hand-sorting process.
