The Story

Kenya | Bluehill 28 | Whole Bean

Kenyan season is officially upon us, be it a little late, but who's counting. Kenyan coffees offer such a distinct acidity that really stand out from the crowd, and it's something we look forward to every year. This time we wanted something bright, and this coffee from the Blue Hill wet mill really stood out on the cupping table. Passionfruit, red apple, bright citrus. 

Kimologit wetmill is part of the eponymous Kimologit Farmers’ Cooperative Society Ltd, based in Kericho county in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley region. The coffee is wet processed, where the fully ripe cherries are pulped, fermented for 12-48 hours (depending on climate conditions), washed and then dried on raised African beds for 2-3 weeks until desired moisture content is reached. 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. 

Kimologit wetmill is located in Kericho county in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley, south-west Kenya. While the county produces an abundance of speciality coffee, it is famously home to multiple large tea estates and is world renowned for its tea production. Kericho county boasts good altitude and highly fertile soils which typically produce medium-high acidity in the cup with notes of citrus and rich chocolate.
