The first Kenyan coffee we’ve been buying directly at the Kenyacof head quarters in Kenya is from the Ruthagati mill.
At Ruthagati farmers selectively hand pick red ripe cherries at a height of 1700 meters above sea level, which is the perfect height for this region. Higher up the nights are too cold. 1700 masl and up is for tea plantations in Nyeri.
The cherry are delivered for wet milling the same day. The parchment is then fermented, washed and sun dried . Dry parchment is milled and bagged at Socfinaf coffee mills and then transported to SMS warehouses in Nairobi. The Coffee is then sold either through the Nairobi auction or direct to overseas buyers. From Ruthagati a lot of coffee is separated in different lots. From the best AB lot we bought 600 kilo’s of greens.
The varieties are SL and a bit of Riuri 11.
