Kiambu County is located just outside of Nairobi city. The region has a long history of coffee production and is famous for its large estates, which were originally built by British colonists in the early 20th century.
Estates such as Gulmarg continue a legacy of many generations of coffee production, supported by unparalleled local knowledge and experience.
This is a honey processed lot, relatively unheard of for Kenyan coffee. Ripe cherries are carefully selected and floated in clean water to remove any immature or poor quality cherries, which float to the top of the tank. These top cherries are then de-pulped to remove the majority of the fruit, whilst retaining the sugary mucilage on the outside of the bean. The coffee is then placed straight onto raised African beds to dry in the sun. The parchment must be consistently turned to prevent over-fermentation, mold, or the clumping from the sugars drying on the bean. After the parchment reaches its optimum moisture content of 12.5% it is rested in a cool, dry environment prior to secondary processing (hulling, grading, and hand-picking).
