You might already have tasted this excellent Kenyan coffee we now have in our bars since a few weeks already. Here is a little word for more in-depth understanding about it: Mwiria is an unusual Kenyan coffee, surprising and delicious.
After cupping it many times and discussing the aromatic and flavor potential of this coffee, everybody at the roastery agreed on the fact that Mwiria doesn't fully taste like what you could expect from a Kenyan coffee: blackberries. Mwiria brings an extra subtile and complex flavor that you can relate to the Ethiopian terroir. We can't really explain why, but here is where it comes from.
Mwiria factory is strategically positioned in a major coffee growing zone. It has a total of 1080 members of which 1060 are active. On average each farmer has approximately 350 coffee trees and 1 hectare of land. Other crops grown by farmers in this region include passion fruits, bananas, cabbages, carrots and tea although farmers are not allowed to intercrop with coffee. Villages that take their coffee to the factory are Kirigi, Kiini, Mukangu and Kathangari. The factory employs three permanent workers and approximately 30 casuals during the peak season. At Mwiria there are 9 waste water soak pits which are enough for draining waste water and are positioned away from the river to prevent water pollution. Napier grass and trees are planted around the pits to help in purifying the waste water. After picking, ripe cherries are brought to the factory before it undergoes processing to remove the skin and pulp โ€“known as the wet processing method. After depulping, the coffee is fermented overnight to break down the sugars, before it is cleaned, soaked and spread out on the raised drying tables. Time on the drying tables depends on climate, ambient temperature and volumes under processing, and can take from 7 to 15 days in total.
Origin: Kenya
Region: Embu
Farm: 1080 smallholders
Variety: SL28, SL34, Ruiru 11 and Batian
Altitude: 1690 masl

๐Ÿ“ฃ COFFEE INFO ๐Ÿ“ฃ CONGO ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฉ We can say so many things and great stories about Congo that it's difficult to find a starting point : the amazing people we met there, the region quite very dangerous at the moment, the outstanding work made by farmers despite the lack of means in the areaโ€ฆ

Nevertheless, let's try to make a loooong story short in a few lines.
Last year, Tom had the great chance, thanks to VECO, to explore the region of East Congo, nearby the lake Kivu and the Virunga park. It is difficult to make good Arabica in Congo. Robusta was discovered in the Bassin du Congo, and people are a bit stuck in between Robusta and Arabica cultivation. Not so many farmers from Congo have the will nor the knowledge to raise Specialty Coffee and understand how to increase the quality of their beans to enjoy a better living. This is where Veco and OR Coffee enter the game:
VECO, on an equipment and organization basis, does a great job in helping farmers to gather around into communities. Helping them to team up and organize washing stations because there is strength in unity. For instance, they help providing depulping equipment to the washing stations in exchange of a very small annual fee that farmers pay to become members and take part of the washing station community. After a while, the depulping equipment belongs to the washing station and VECO retires, leaving farmers independent with knowledge and equipment. Special mention to Leopold who's doing such a good job over there, but also Lydie, looking for good practices for women in the coffee environment.

After being fermented and processed, the coffees go to the Kawa Kabuya cooperative (that has people on the board of the washing stations to collaborate). When the coffee is sold, it goes to Boutembo to be deparched (in a former Coca Cola factory) and exported.

Tom has visited different washing stations. The area is really not safe for now, but definitely worth the trip. On our side, OR helps farmers to understand how to increase the quality of their beans.

No more of your favorite Bruzzi from Brazil on espresso? Well, you know us, we always have a solution. And this time, the solution is the new Direct Trade coffee from the Fazenda Pedra Bonita in the city of Sรฃo Joรฃo Do Manhuaรงu. This coffee is grown in a very small piece of land compared to other coffees (40ha only). It's almost like you would have a coffee from our garden. This one is a pulped natural coffee, variety is Catuai Amarelo, and altitude is 950 to 1150 masl, which means it is not close to brazilian beaches at all. These are the best beans produced at Dutra farm, they are hand-picked, located in the best lands in the farm, among water falls and native trees. We wait the right moment of maturation to harvest it, and then they are carefully dried in african beds, in order to have the best quality of the coffees. Be prepared for delicious notes of sweet cacaonibs, almonds, low acidity and a full body
