ALTITUDE 1,400m above sea level
Nyawira estate and factory is located about 10 kilometers outside of Embu town, in Embu County, Kenya. The estate grows coffee as well as beans and bananas in the red volcanic soil found in this area.
The coffee here is depulped the same day it's harvested, and is sorted several times both before and after depulping. The coffee is also pre-graded after depulping, and separated into three categories of quality (parchment 1, parchment 2, and "lights"). The coffee is fermented for a period of time that is determined by how the seeds feel: When the parchment isn't sticky anymore, and is easily removed when the seeds are rubbed between a worker's hands, then the fermentation is complete.
